"Why Should I Worry?" as written by Dan Hartman and Charlie Midnight....
One minute I'm in Central Park
Then I'm down on Delancey Street
From the Bowery to St. Marks
There's a syncopated beat

I'm streetwise
I can improvise
I'm street-smart
I've got New York City heart

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
I may not have a dime
But I got street savoir-faire
Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
It's just be-bop-ulation
And I got street savoir-faire

The rhythm of the city
But once you get it down
Then you can own this town
You can wear the crown

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
I may not have a dime
But I got street savoir-faire
Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
It's just du-wop-ulation
And I got street savoir-faire

Everything goes!
Everything fits!
They love me at the Chelsea!
They adore me at the Ritz!

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
And even when I cross that line
I got street savoir-faire

    General CommentThis song is bitchin'! Yes, pun intended.
    I think it's a real Disney gem, and a good Billy Joel song.
