Staying home is not really an option
For alcoholics living in Manhattan
Have you seen the size of John Bush's apartment?
It's a bit smaller than a glove compartment

For all my friends in New York
The next 10 rounds are on me

New Yorkers have the most familiar faces
And they do their drugs in the most public places
Every week an old friend shows up, surprise
And wants my friends to stay up for the sunrise

Hello Max, Johnny, John, Omar
Hello sun, goodbye Niagra Bar

How many times can you listen to Blondie?
The Clash, The Ramones, and that Strokes song?
How many people can we fit in a bathroom?
That Ryan Adams guy is fucking crazy

To Pete, Brian, and Jimmy G
The next ten lines are on me

    General CommentWell the apartments in NY (Manhattan) are tiny and 10 times more expensive than the ones in the outerboros.

    Ryan Adams is that alt-country rock singer who wrote a song called New York New York
    ("i'll always love you though, new york")
