[Intro]
Am7

[Verse 1]
Am7
Now lightning strikes in old New York
Am7
It may be dark but I wanna talk
Am7
It might rain, it might snow
Am7
There's too many things that I got to know
Am7
If this is spring then it's time to sing
Am7
Never mind the little birdies wing
Am7
Look out, look out, old New York
Am7
New York's comin' and New York talk
E7
Hey! Strike! Not once
E7
Strike! But twice!

[Verse 2]
Am7
Get out your money peel a slab
Am7
Roll some notes and hail a cab
Am7
Drive in church drive in back
Am7
Drive down Seventh in a tank
Am7
Take in the sights, feel the breeze
Am7
See New York's one and only tree
Am7
It can be found in Garbage park
Am7
But don't inspect it after dark, no
E7
Strike! New York! Lightning!
E7
Not once but twice

[Verse 3]
Am7
Accidental hike in the transit strike
Am7
Roller skate or ride a bike
Am7
Three to a car, Brooklyn Bridge
Am7
You won't get far if you're privileged
Am7
Graffiti Jack sprays in black
Am7
An Englishman can he read it back?
Am7
Deli Joe he ought to know
Am7
He runs the gang on Pastrami Row
E7
Strike! Lightning strike!
E7
Oohhhhh
E7
Strike! strike! Lightning
E7
Strike! Lightning
E7
Strike! Lightning Strike! Lightning

[Verse 4]
Am7
Because glass to glass, street to street
Am7
Buildings touch St. Peter's feet
Am7
From car to bar, prez to shah
Am7
Everything is in the jar
Am7
The 4 winds blow 'cause the 4 winds know
Am7
Takes a special hustle to make a roll
Am7
Honey girl on her feet
Am7
I wish everything to make her sweet

[Interlude]
Am7
E7
Ow!
E7
Strike! Twice! Ok, so roll!
E7
From Harlem! Strike one!

[Verse 5]
Am7
Harlem slum to penthouse block
Am7
On every door I already knocked
Am7
There wasn't anybody that I didn't leave alone
Am7
Somebody lyin' under every stone
Am7
Everything that a man could need
Am7
In a bag down by my knee
Am7
That looks good, this ain't got seeds
Am7
Cheaper than booze down in the Bowery
E7
Lightning strike! Old New York!

Everything's light! Strike!

[Verse 6]
Am7
Hey ho such a night
Am7
I'll see you all when the lightning strike
Am7
A Polaroid caught in the act
Am7
You're married too and that's a fact
Am7
But I won't peek and I won't squeak
Am7
Down by the trucks on Christopher Street
Am7
It's Cuban Day Oy Vey
Am7
Chinese New Year let's call it a day
Am7
Tootsie! Hey Chi man!
Am7
That melody is Puerto Rican
Am7
Hey Chi man is what he's speaking
Am7
An' there's the road down into London Town
Am7
Where many cars get broken down
Am7
It's the West way from Lad-broke Grove
Am7
Runs down to Old Hounslow
Am7
Just thought I would mention the new extension
Am7
That run's down the 59th street intersection
Am7
Did you hear the news y'all?
Am7
London Town on the Broadway!
