The Lyrics

Brooklyn is a busy district of New York, as said by many. Sometimes, during the busy months people complain about it.
Don't sleep in....

Banging all around, there's sounds of loud metal,
including some that sound like rattling kettles!
These cons are the cons in NYC,
Nights in Brooklyn are always busy!

If you want the best location,
Brooklyn ain't a good vacation!
Though the subway's on the timetable.
You can get in if you're willing and able!

Ain't no faking, too much photo taking,
Sometimes the apartments are a-shaking!
Like the rest of New York, it's busy day and night!
Brooklyn is like a rock concert that's performed live!

Don't sleep in....

Just take a plane, just take a train,
the noises might just hurt your brain.
Though lots of walking around night,
do not even drive!

The hipsters are crazy and always smoke dust!
For transit fans the company's Novabus!
Just like London, it's loud 'round the clock.
During big event's, Brooklyn's the sound of rock!

But in here, you can find lots of style!
I guess that's one thing here's that's worth your while.
Oh and if you want me to tell more,
stereotypicals here act like wh***s!

The walls are all organized and stacked,
though if you're alone, you better watch your back!
You just won't have time!

Don't sleep in...
Don't sleep in Brooklyn!
Don't sleep in Brooklyn!

There is a lot of grumpy sounders, man,
Brooklyn accents, old buildings and...

The most famous district of USA,
Even from birth to this very day!
Like London, Kathmandu, Nairobi and Edmonton.
There is a bunch of preforming men and women.

Once it is mentioned on TV shows,
Then people watching 'em all then know:
"Oh god, If I were there, then I would say:
'Excuse me, you get out of the way!'
With all these noises, how will I sleep?
Brooklyn will be busy all days a week!"

Don't sleep in...
Don't sleep in Brooklyn!
Don't sleep in Brooklyn!
Don't (Don't) sleep (sleep) in Brooklyn! (Brooklyn)!
Don't (Don't) sleep (sleep) in Brooklyn! (YEAH)!

Don't (Don't) sleep (sleep) in Brooklyn! (Brooklyn)!
Don't (Don't) sleep (sleep) in Brooklyn! (Brooklyn)!
Don't (Don't) sleep (sleep) in Brooklyn! (Brooklyn)!
Don't (Don't) sleep (sleep) in Brooklyn! (Brooklyn)!
Both good and bad about Brooklyn. (NOTE: I haven't been to New York, but I have heard what this district is like).

An instant dud. You don't know jack about Brooklyn except stereotype.

I once fell asleep in Brooklyn. On the subway. Woke up in Bedford-Stuyvesant. This was in 1992, the bad old days for New York. Got out without getting hassled. I wasn't just good, I was lucky.

You never been and yet wanna slam Brooklyn? How about the Bridge, Park Slope, the Botanical Garden, the Museum, the Tabernacle, the Library, the Promenade, Bridge Park, Green-Wood Cemetery, and the many fine restaurants serving NY pizza to Papaya Pok Pok? What you wrote makes you a 730.

No, I forgot to put that in there. If I had time I would. I like these, and this actually is how I 50% see Brooklyn.

PLUS one of my lines says, "Get in if your willing and able". That means if you can have a resistance to crowds (which I don't), but go there for fun to see all these fun things (which you said), makes me partially willing and able. If you disagree, I should really make a protest song against my parents for telling me this.
