Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Day-trader in a tie-dye jumpsuit
And a gutter punk kid with a neck tattoo
Hooking up at the unisex bathroom
It was Brooklyn
it was Friday
it was love

Across the bar sat the hip-hop purist
Arguing with the jazz obscurists
And in the corner were the terrified tourists
Brooklyn. Friday. Love.

Angel choirs on the corner all night
Sing Johnny Cash and Jackson 5
Little heaven you can stumble into
We got your invite tonight

Don't try to fight it
Oh, it's just Brooklyn on a Friday
Don't try to fight it
Oh, it's just Brooklyn on a Friday

They come from Mississippi and La La Land
New wave hippies and the pop goth glam
It's just 'cause parents don't understand
It was Brooklyn
It was Friday
It was love

From this roof you can see the stars
We are the left bank dreamers
And the avant garde
I'll sing my borrowed song on your borrowed guitar
It was Brooklyn
It was Friday
It was love

Angel choirs on the midnight G train
Some Beastie Boys and Kurt Cobain
Revolution you can learn to dance to
With a friendly face on the way

Don't try to fight it
Oh, it's just Brooklyn on a Friday
Don't try to fight it
Oh, it's just Brooklyn on a Friday

Bushwick Avenue
Bedford Avenue
Franklin Avenue
I'm on my way
Where are you

Don't try to fight it
Oh, it's just Brooklyn on a Friday
Don't try to fight it
Oh, it's just Brooklyn on a Friday

Don't try to fight it
Oh, it's just Brooklyn on a Friday
Don't try to fight it
Oh, it's just Brooklyn on a Friday

It's just Brooklyn on a Friday
It's just Brooklyn on a Friday
Bushwick Avenue
It's just Brooklyn on a Friday
Bedford Avenue
It's just Brooklyn on a Friday
Franklin Avenue
It's just Brooklyn on a Friday
I'm on my way
It's just Brooklyn on a Friday
