Lyrics

Gotta get to Brooklyn
I can only touch you in Brooklyn, I can only touch you when we get across that river. I can only touch you in Brooklyn, I can only touch you when we get across that river now.
Queens is too risky, the Bronx is too bricky, manhattan’s too tricky, Staten Island who goes there?
I can only touch you in Brooklyn, I can only touch you when we get across that river. I can only touch you in Brooklyn, I can only touch you when we get across that river now.

I love the view of the Verrazano bridge in the morning makes me smile and stop yawning. I love the beats and the sounds of the music in the streets. I love drinking on smith st, I love Brooklyn when it hits me. I love the views from the promenade, its totally free you don’t need a fat wad. See a sweet show at Bam, you know you’re in a brook-land, Wander up Flatbush to the park, you could even prospect after dark. Wine and dine in park slope, brownstones so pretty makes you wish you weren’t broke. You don’t have to be a little upsurd to wanna score some weed in Williamsburg. And if you’re looking for some fun though, you might head over to dumbo. Ah Brooklyn, got Nathan’s, got the zoo and if we had a choice we’d take you too.

I can only touch you in Brooklyn, I can only touch you when we get across that river. I can only touch you in Brooklyn, I can only touch you when we get across that river now.
Its how you walk it’s a how u move, it’s a how you talk its how you groove, its Brooklyn. Its more than a face, its more than a place, its more than a trace of that sweet smell in Brooklyn. When its late at night and early in the morn, I sometimes get that funky warning, going through my head, if I don’t get home, I’m gonna be dead, now get to Brooklyn, I gotta get to Brooklyn, my life's in Brooklyn, everything every night, its Brooklyn, its big, its small, throw it against the wall, if it don’t fall, you know, you’re in Brooklyn.
Queens is too risky, the Bronx is too bricky, Manhattan’s too tricky,
Staten Island who goes there?
Staten Island who goes there?
Staten Island who goes there?
