The Lyrics

In memoriam, Grace Darton Golden, 1924-2006. Grandma loved Roy Orbison, so here goes:
(instrumental opening)

City woman, walking down the street.
See the butcher, gotta buy that meat.
City woman...

"I don't believe you, can't hear that sound!
Roast beef is sixty cents a pound?
Oy vey!"

City woman, to Brooklyn she's come.
City woman, to cheer on her Bums.
City woman...

She's as happy as can be:
Dodgers 7, Giants 3!
Yow!

City woman, tried to smile
though Depression stayed a while.
City woman, worked through war, you see.

City woman had to say
"Gotta leave New York today.
Gotta move on out to New Jersey!
'Cause it's safer.
The schools are right.
Got kid to care for.
We leave tonight!"

City woman
lives down the Shore.
City woman
drives to the store.
City woman...

"Grandchildren come today!
Okay!
But the Mets lost again, oy vey!
And those Republicans I hate.
Maybe tomorrow night...
But wait!
What do I see?"

"I won in Atlantic City!"

"Yeah, so have a drink with me!"

Oh...
Oh...
City woman!

She wouldn't have been an Amiright fan, though. She hated modern technology, especially computers. And she wouldn't have known most of these original songs, and she hated raunchy humor. But she did like "My Grandmother's Cat." She was 81, and she leaves behind my mother, my sister and me. A lot of what you see from me on this site -- irreverent sense of humor, low "idiot tolerance," liberal politics and sports nut (but Mets instead of Yankees) -- came from her. In other words, you mess with me, you're messing with her. And she was NOT one to be messed with.
