(Verse 1)
They say I'm too young to love you,
I don't know what I need,
They think I don't understand
The freedom land of the 70's
I think I'm too cool to know ya,
You say I'm like the ice I freeze
I'm churning out novels like Beat poetry
On ampetamines

(Pre-Chorus)
I say, I say

(Chorus)
Well my boyfriends in a band,
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed,
I've got feathers in my hair,
I get down to Beat poetry,
And my jazz collections rare
I can play most anything,
I'm a Brooklyn baby,
I'm a Brooklyn baby

(Verse 2)
They say I'm too young to love you,
They say I'm too dumb to see,
They judge me like a picture book by the colors
Like they forgot to read,
I think we're like fire and water,
I think we're like the wind and sea,
You're burning up, I'm cooling down
You're up, I'm down
You're blind, I see

(Pre-Chorus)
But I'm free, I'm free

(Chorus)
Well my boyfriends in a band,
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed,
I've got feathers in my hair,
I get down to Beat poetry,
And my jazz collections rare
I can play most anything,
I'm a Brooklyn baby, I'm a Brooklyn baby

(Bridge)
I'm talking by my generation,
I'm talking bout that newer nation,
And if you don't like it
You can beat it, beat it baby
You never liked the way I said it,
If you don't get it, then forget it
Cause I don't have to fucking explain it

(Chorus)
And my boyfriends in a band,
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed,
I've got feathers in my hair,
I get high on hydroponic weed,
And my jazz collections rare,
I get down to Beat poetry,
I'm a Brooklyn baby, I'm a Brooklyn baby

Yeah, my boyfriends pretty cool,
But he's not as cool as me,
Cause I'm a Brooklyn baby,
I'm a Brooklyn baby
