Miami 2017 (Seen The Lights Go Out On Broadway) - Billy Joel (比利·喬)

I seen the lights go out on Broadway

 

I saw the Empire State laid low

 

And life went on beyond the Palisades

 

They all bought Cadillacs and left there long ago

 

They held a concert out in Brooklyn

 

To watch the island bridges blow

 

They turned our power down

 

And drove us underground

 

But we went right on with the show

Oooh Oh Oh Ooh

 

I seen the lights go out on Broadway

 

I saw the ruins at my feet

 

You know we almost didn't notice it

 

We'd see it all the time on 42nd Street

 

They burned the churches up in Harlem

 

Like in that Spanish Civil War

 

The flames were everywhere

 

But no one really cared:

 

It always burned up there before

 

Ooh Oh Oh Ooh

 

I seen the lights go out on Broadway

 

I watched the mighty skyline fall

 

The boats were waiting at the Battery

 

The union went on strike:

 

They never sailed at all

 

They sent the carrier out from Norfolk

 

And picked the Yankees up for free

 

They said that Queens could stay

 

They blew the Bronx away

 

And sank Manhattan out at sea

 

You know those lights were bright on Broadway

 

But that was so many years ago:

 

Before we all lived here in Florida

 

Before the Mafia took over Mexico

 

There are not many who remember;

 

They say a handful still survive

 

To tell the world about

 

The way the lights went out

 

And keep the memory alive
