[Verse 1: Ezra Koenig (SBTRKT)]
My girl's got a minimum
Keep it stuck right there 'til the number comes
Leave it smooth operator like a locked up bum
My girl's got a city to run
Got the key to the kingdom where the money's from
Never seen calienda, never seen the sun
(And he thinks I'm the negative one)

[Chorus: SBTRKT (2X)]
Flags flappin' in Manhattan
New Dorp New York
Gargoyles gargling oil
Peak of the empire, top of the rock

[Verse 2: Ezra Koenig (SBTRKT)]
My girl's got a little schtick
Keep your coat up in the kitchen while you feed the kid
Keep your waitin' in the winter while the tension ticks
My girl got a limousine
Got a full time job just to keep it clean
Got a speaker in the trunk; you know it weighs a tonne
(You think I'm the negative one)

[Chorus: (2X)]

[Interlude: Ezra Koenig (2X)]
New Dorp New York

[Bridge: SBTRKT (2X)]
Late nights as black Israelites
White women singing under dying lights
Baseball bats that never hit home runs

[Ezra Koenig]
I got a baseball bat, never hit home runs

[Verse 1: Repeated]

[Interlude: (2X)]

[Chorus (2X)]

[Verse 2: Repeated]

[Outro: Ezra Koenig (5X)]
My girl's got a city to run
