Testo new york city - john lennon

New york City

Standing on the corner

Just me and Yoko Ono

We was waiting for Jerry to land

Up come a man with a guitar in his hand

Singing
Have a marijuana if you can


His name was David Peel

And we found that he was real

He sang
The Pope smokes dope every day


Up come a policeman shoved us up the street

Singing
Power to the people today!




New York City...New York City...New York City

Que pasa
New York?

Que pasa
New York?



Well down to Max's Kansas City

Got down the nitty gritty

With the Elephants Memory Band

Laid something down

As the news spread around

About the Plastic Ono Elephants Memory Band!

And we played some funky boogie

And laid some tutti frutti

Singing
Long Tall Sally's a man.


Up come a preacherman trying to be a teacher

Singing
God's a red herring in drag!




New York City...New York City...New York City

Que pasa
New York?

Que pasa
New York?



New York City...New York City...New York City

Que pasa
New York?

Que pasa
New York?



Well we did the Staten Island Ferry

Making movies for the telly

Played the Fillmore and Apollo for freedom

Tried to shake our image

Just a cycling through the Village

But found that we had left it back in London

Well nobody came to bug us

Hustle us or shove us

So we decided to make it our home

If the Man wants to shove us out

We gonna jump and shout

The Statue of Liberty said
Come!




New York City...New York City...New York City

Que pasa
New York?

Que pasa
New York?



New York City...back in New York City...New York City

Que pasa
New York?

Que pasa
New York
