I look at a graveyard
While I'm in the shower
And I, I sing my songs
Well not in the morning
When the water is boiling
Late, late at night
I think to myself

Whatever happened to the Brooklyn Dodgers?
Whatever happened to me?
Whatever happened to all the New York gentleman?
Well my daddy said son..
You're looking at one

Then there's my dad
He jokes about the times
That he's had back when he was hippie
And how our relatives
Changed their names
Just to seem more American


Hey hey hey hey hey
You go your own way
Hey hey hey heyy
We'll start to fix it, hey

Whatever happened to the brooklyn dodgers?
Whatever happened to me?
Whatever happened to all the New York gentleman?
Did they just float out to sea?
Whatever happened to all the New York gentleman?
My daddy said son..
You're lookin at one
You're lookin at one

    My InterpretationI think there are a couple of inaccuracies in the lyrics because you have the demo version up, but here's my interpretation:

    I feel like this song is about those moments when you look back at your life and realize how much you've changed over the years, how you might've grown up believing you would be one thing and end up being something completely different because you've adapted yourself to new situations. His father is a grown gentleman now, but once was a hippie. The relatives changing their names, "We go our own way."

    It could also be about a dying music scene, or its just asking something like "where have all the good people gone?"

    I'm probably over-thinking it, but whatever.
