David Byrne – Neighborhood lyrics
Funky beats, Barrow Street
Walking with your dog

I see you, You see me
Then we stop & talk

Later on, some cafe
Thinking what you said

Children laugh, telling jokes
'Till their eyes are red

The people feel so good
Say boy, say girl
All in my neighborhood
Say boy, say girl
We got peace, love & monkey business
Gonna reach the very top
There'll be pride, hope & Sunday mornings
All the things I'm thinking of
We could change the world
In the night while we are sleeping
The Power's in my neighborhood

Liquor stores, stop & shop
Old folks sit outside
Restaurants - Laundromats
She's still on my mind

April, May, June, July
August comes around
Pretty soon, a years gone by
And we're still hanging out

The people feel so good
Say boy, say girl
All in my neighborhood
Say boy, say girl
We got peace love & monkey business
Gonna reach the very top
There'll be pride, hope & Sunday mornings
All the things I'm thinking of
We could change the world
In the night while we are sleeping


Now the rich get richer
& the poor stay poor
& folks get restless
If it don't change soon

But there's a sweet sensation
Turnin bad to good
& things get better
In my neighborhood

So burn on - you little candle - put your light into my head
There's a lone wolf - on the mountain - he's the friend you never had
We got peace, love & monkey business - gonna reach the very top
There'll be - pride, hope & Sunday mornings - all the things I'm thinking of

So, come on down
