lyrics

If I'm being honest, well I have to admit that Brooklyn's been good to me.
I know I said unfavorable things about it
Please accept my apology
Come on, show a little mercy to me

If we're being real I guess that I should acknowledge
That Brooklyn's done alright by me
Its doors swung wide whenever I'd drop by
And it never asked nothing from me
And at times took me seriously

I once wrote on the wall at the back of Muchmore's
"Philadelphia's full, maybe try Baltimore"
But that wasn't right
That wasn't fair now I see
Because Brooklyn's been good to me

If I'm being honest, well, Philly's a mess
And I'm not getting out alive
Still I cringe at the thought, I freely confess
Of Philadelphia, NY
Zip code 19125
But that's not Brooklyn's fault, or mine

If I'm being honest, Boston's boring as hell
And the people who live there know that very well
If I'm being honest well, Pittsburgh's much more
Much more than it ever gets credit for
Still, New Orleans is the best damn city in the world, I believe
But Brooklyn's been good to me.

If I'm being honest
Then I have to admit that Brooklyn's been good to me
I know I've said unfavorable things about it
Please accept my apology
Come on, show a little mercy please
Goodnight Brooklyn
Love,
Me
