The Lyrics

It was 30 years ago this month that the maniac was finally caught. Or was he? There's evidence that "Sam" may have had other "sons." After all, those police sketches look nothing like David Berkowitz, as you can see if you're watching the miniseries "The Bronx Is Burning" on ESPN. Some summer in New York: It hit 104 degrees on July 6, the blackout and looting on July 13, and the five-way Mayoral tussle between Abe Beame, Ed Koch, Mario Cuomo, Herman Badillo and Bella Abzug. And, through it all, somehow, the Yankees built a World Series winner.
(instrumental opening)

I'm searching for the Son of Sam!
Searching for the Son of Sam, I am!
I asked questions of the widow next door!
She faced serial killer once before!

This guy is our city's enemy!
(Enemy!)
His .44 has put us in a jam!
(Big jam!)
He's pursued by our N.Y.P.D.!
Searching for the Son of Sam!

Daily News
he sent some clues!

I'm searching for the Son of Sam!
Searching for the Son of Sam, I am!
The temperature's hit a hundred and four!
Blackout, rioting in Brooklyn stores!

And vote we're taking for the Mayoralty!
(Mayoralty!)
Ed Koch is saying Abe Beame is a sham!
(A sham!)
But this killer's leaving us bloody!
Searching for the Son of Sam!

(instrumental break)

I'm searching for the Son of Sam!
Searching for the Son of Sam, I am!
Hey, what's this? A parking ticket on car door?
Key to find caliber .44!

And Berkowitz's insanity
(Insanity!)
will keep him always locked up in the can!
(The can!)
Says he's ordered to kill by puppy!
Hey, we got the Son of Sam!

D! A! V! I! D!
Berkowitz!
(Berkowitz!)
Berkowitz!
(Berkowitz!)
Finally got the damn Son of Sam!
Hey, we got the Son of Sam!

Yeah!
