lyrics

My quick step flip-flop captain
Your princess has a stone stuck in her shoe
And you're wondering what happened
'Cause I agree to take a walk 'round your part of town with you
But by the time we get to Brooklyn
I think I'll have fallen in love

We walked by the Dakota
We talked about our favorite Lennon songs
When you held my hand in your hand
I imagined growing old along with you

Then we ran to catch the Q train
We picked it up at the Carnegie Hall
Where the steel drum plays Tchaikovsky
And down down babies slumbering babies chaos and all
And by the time we get to Brooklyn
I think I'll have fallen in love

Easy come and easy going
Even if it lasts a moment
Heaven knows I took a couple for the team
Had a drunkard and a drifter
A gold digger and a gifter
Even one who couldn't help but make a scene
Why'd my baby treat me oh so mean?

And on the train ride back from Brooklyn
I happily had fallen out of love

You're just about to get me
I'm just about to see you as you really are
This is just about my favorite part
When the darkness of the tunnel turns to bright blue light of day
