N.Y. I dig
What about it?
N.Y. is big
People tout it
I flip my wig
What about?
'Bout a street I dig

One day I was walkin' an'
Finally came upon a series of alphabet streets
A B C and D, but I went for C
The most of the hard-to-forget streets
It's really and truly the dilly of all m'pet streets

Hey, hey, hey everybody now
Come go walkin' with me now
Walk up Avenue C now
Chicks all lookin' so pretty
They don't give me no pity
Avenue C is the grooviest in the city

I never dug an avenue more enjoyable to me
C Avenue is groovy
Yes it was groovy as it could be
Walk with me down Avenue C
Man I really hope to say
Come on baby, while we ramble
Walk beside me while we ramble
You dig it too I feel you do
What a scenic hike
It's a walk that you're bound to like
Y'got A on the one side
B on the other
C in the middle
Baby

The reason that you're feelin' so down, babe
Is 'cause you live in Stuyvesant Town, babe
I dug you down in Hamilton Fish, babe
And realized that you were my dish, babe
Walkin' home and you can walk with me
Walkin' hand in hand on Avenue C, oh babe
And while we're walkin' we can do some talkin'
While the people dig us wonderin'
What we're puttin' down
While we, happy as we can be, glide on
Takin' life in stride up to Murphy Park
There beside the river

Well our feet got rhythm
(Pure pedal syncopation)
'N when we walk with 'em
(Demandin' admiration)
Well our step is snappy
(Dig people step aside now)
Because we're so happy
(We're takin' life in stride now)
Avenue C your vibrations
Are followin' me, oh yes

Everybody busily lookin'
(Yes yes)
Me and baby steadily cookin'
(Yes yes)
Start at one end talkin' and movin'
(Yes yes)
To the other wiggin' and groovin'
So come
You should
And view
I would
This Ave
You could
Venue
It's good
(Walk on)
C Avenue, see it my way
(Talk on)
No better view on a highway
Big town you don't know 'till you see it
(Walk on)
I never saw such a wonderful sight

You're gonna love it break
I'm hip, you'll flip
When you dig it you'll stop and linger
You'll pop your top
What a pleasure and what a swinger
Go dig it cop that view
It's bound to thrill you
(Come on, come on, go go)
Go dig it cop that view it's bound to thrill you
(Come on, come on, now, go go)
Go dig it cop that view it's bound to thrill you
Go dig it cop that view it's bound to thrill you
