Brooklyn another victory trickles in from the war
Sleep in Philadelphia, tomorrow it's you
Belle for a moment, a lifetime too soon
And passed off to Brooklyn by the jealousy homecoming court
Brooklyn your Christmas is down to a T
My angel's in snow thanks to your certainty
And we look back and laugh on a bad Halloween
As the smiling canal made its way up to you and to me
Brooklyn accept my surrender tonight
As I'm walking through Red Hook held warm in its glow
Traffic slows to a halt and I finally know
You were out of your mind yes, but Christ you were out of sight
You left me on Union to question if I was alone
And the horse we rode in on and how I could ever go home
