Powder Blue

lyrics

It’s a New York powder blue
And your mama tried to scold you
But there’s nothing she can do
And the beat wont stop
It’s another citation in a bad location
Forgot about the rotation
Up and down the block, oh yeah

Now I’m much too wild to stay in school
I gotta find a new place where the kids are cool
Come and go with me now, baby what cha wanna do?

It’s a summertime heat wave
And I’m sweatin’ like a slave
So I’m ridin’ on the subway
To the very last stop
Honey, take a look at me now
I think that anyone could see now
I ‘aint sweet like yer candy, baby
Or yer soda pop

Now I’m much too wild to stay in school
I gotta find a new place where the kids are cool
Come and go with me now, baby what cha wanna do?

Used to be that yer mama held yer hand
Used to be that yer daddy made you understand
About boys like me

She’s putting on her lipstick
And I’m pullin’ out the dipstick
And the radio’s playin’ the Blitzkrieg Bop
And the nights almost over
But I only wanna hold her
And if this Goddamn car wont start
Then I guess we’ll walk

Now I’m much too wild to stay in school
I gotta find a new place where the kids are cool
Come and go with me now, baby what cha wanna do?
