Come downstairs, I'm buzzing you
come downstairs, I got nothing to do
come downstairs now
come downstairs now
come downstairs now

You know there's a legend and it goes like this
if you kiss the lamppost between 224th street and 225th
in the Bronx
when it's a full moon
you’ll be granted three wishes

but nobody does it
they don't believe in magical realism in the Bronx
they don't even believe it exists in other places
but especially not in the Bronx
come downstairs now
I'm buzzing you
it's a full moon
our wishes will come true soon

Do you know what I'd wish for? Do you know what I'd wish for?
Do you know what I’d wish for? Do you know what I'd wish for?

a 24-hour Baskin Robbins in my neighborhood
an elevator in my building so that I wouldn't have to walk up to the eighth floor
and also a dog

    General CommentThis is probably the cutest song I've ever heard.
    It seems pretty simple to me; the speaker is just bored and at a friend's place calling up to them "come on come on come on! I'm bored! Let's go do something! Anything! I heard of this legend! Lets Go!"

    General CommentI love the way she makes the piano sound like she's buzzing her friend, especially when she gets impatient.

    General CommentI just love the last verse - what she wishes for. They're so seemingly mundane and simple, and it's incredibly cute and childlike. It fits in with the impatient buzzing verses.

    General CommentReminded me of Bruce Lee: "Be formless... shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle; it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot; it becomes the teapot. Water can flow, and it can crash. Be like water, my friend..."[59]
