New York Shuffle Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
(Spoken) All right, let's do the New York Shuffle (over D)
A D A D A D
D A
Manhattan baby with a sing song voice
G D
she got her place in the human zoo
D A
I went to living on the boulevard
G A
now that the revolution's due
G A
She said I've been around from town to town
G A
and I learned to love and hate
G A
But time don't change not a unique game,
G A D
they just keep herding through that gate
CHORUS
D A
And do the New York shuffle, baby New York scuffle,
G D
Going to stay awake all night
D A
Do the New York shuffle, baby New York scuffle,
G A D D A D
Get yourself uptight, get uptight
Stick around kids you're going to see some action
better shoot them in the street
Grab a gun before the police come,
Don't tell me you're too sweet
Down in the alley they are hitting harder
Not as blown as a ball can be
They're burnin flags here and just in drag here
It sure is a sight to see
REPEAT CHORUS
BRIDGE
Bm E Bm E
Mister Mayor give the key, let me lock you up
Bm E G A
Throw that key down the deepest subway in New York, New York
INSTRUMENTAL VERSE (2 lines end on D)
Ah primal scream I had electric dream
I had to
