Lyrics Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out on Broadway)

Seen the lights go out on Broadway
I saw the Empire State laid low
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
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
I've seen the lights go out on Broadway
I saw the ruins at my feet
You know we almost didn't notice it
We'd seen it all the time on forty-second street
They burned the churches up in Harlem like in the Spanish civil war
The flames were everywhere but no one really cared
It always burned up there before
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
I've seen the lights go out on Broadway
I've watched the mighty skyline fall
The boats were waiting at the battery
The Union went on strike they never sailed at all
They sent a 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
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
