canarsie palmscanarsie’s fine the sun shines most of the time
& the feeling is laid back
palm trees grow & rents are low
but you know i keep thinking about
making my way back

well i’m brighton beach born & raised
but nowadays i’m lost between two shores
canarsie’s home but it ain’t mine
brighton’s mine but it ain’t home no morei heart mom

wwib i said
to noone there
& noone heard at all
not even the chair
