The Vampires of New York

Marcy Playground

C                                   G
Come see the vampires of New York, a-ah
C                                     G
Come lose your mind in Central Park, a-ah
                          C        G
But don't leave your soul behind, a-ah

C                                    G  
Come take in 8th street after dark, a-ah
C                                    G
Such peculiar people you'll remark, a-ah
                     C        G 
You might even see a murder, a-ah

    F                 G  
And all the whores on Bleecker Street
They wear the blissful grin
F             G  
Caused by the drugs they take
   C                             G
To relieve them of their sins, ah-oh

           C    Am                G   
And "Oh-oh lord     I think she's dying"
                  C    Am                G
I heard somebody say,      I think she's dying
            C     Am               G 
And "Oh, oh lord     I think she's dying"

Or, maybe she's already dead
and maybe she's gone to Mars
Maybe we could even write her epitaph
in the stars.

          C           G
It'd say "If you go a-way from here...
C           G 
if you go a million miles..."
F    C   G
Come downtown
   F   C    G
to see them go

         C                                  G
Into the den of the vampires of New York ha-hah

But please watch your step as you're
