I saw a rainbow stretched across the ocean crashed the big apple
So I took a bite found a taste I like but she bit me back
I jumped across the ocean found a big apple so I took a bite
She teased me with a taste laid my soul to waste
Stabbed me in the back

Hell's Kitchen is a DMZ
I ain't never coming back, no
Hell's Kitchen is a DMZ
I ain't never coming back, child

Pressure never stops pressure never drops Lennon got fried
Said it was a crime said it was a pity no one even cried
Pressure never stops pressure never drops Lennon got fried
Said it was a crime said it was a pity no one even cried, cried, cried

Oh, Hell's Kitchen is a crazy place
I ain't never coming back, oh no no
Hell's Kitchen is a crazy place
I ain't never coming back

Oh, New York City
Oh, New York City, yeah, yeah
New York City, yeah
Oh, New York City, well, well

Hell's Kitchen is a DMZ I'm never coming back, no
Disneyland, trash can baby, yeah give you a heart attack
The Times Square shuffle, Manhattan flip twenty four hour groove
Working up a frenzy baby people push on through, yeah

Listen boy
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I jumped across the ocean found a big apple so I took a bite
She teased me with a taste laid my soul to waste
Stabbed me in the back

Hell's Kitchen is a crazy place
I'm never coming back, no no no
Hell's Kitchen is a DMZ
I ain't never, never, yeah

Oh, New York City
Wake up, yeah, in the New York City
Well, New York City, yeah, yeah
New York City, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Shake it up, do it now
Shake it up, bells ringing
I'm shooting down on the hip now
I'm shooting down on the hip now, baby
I'm shooting down on the hip now
Oh, New York City
