LYRICS:

Brighton Beach 2032 Blues

Went along to Times Square in the morning light
Travelled to the evening when I started a fight
Ran away and sang until the night got bright
Went along to Times Square in the morning light

Snowing in Manhattan so I went to a store
I looked for my vibrators in nineteen sixty four
All around were people and all they did was stare
`Cos my costume was too weird and they couldn`t see my hair

Twenty thirty two I went to Brighton Beach
No more Russians there just some folks out of reach
I looked around and saw the grey sea turned to stone
The Coney Island funfair a Millenium Dome

All those pierogi where can they be?
Eaten up by yuppies in two thousand and three
People on the boardwalk still dressed up in furs
Moved down from Fifth Avenue looking for the worse

All my dreams and fantasies I gave them all to you
Now theyıre stranded on the boardwalk in nineteen forty two
I went home to Bavaria to catch the morning post
Nothing from Manhattan and nothing from the coast

Went along to Times Square in the morning light
Travelled to the evening when I started a fight
Ran away and sang until the night got bright
