The New York by Pete Seeger


J-D’s a home made product, that’s what the subway poster say
J-D’s a home made product, that’s what the subway poster say
How can you be a home made product, when you haven’t a home anyway
Standing on the corner, till half past two or three
Well, standing on the corner, till half past two or three
One room ain’t big enough, for seven other kids and me
I ain’t got a father, mama waits for the welfare mail
Ain’t got a father, mama waits for the welfare mail
Now sister’s down on Times square, brother sits in jail
Now my sister work in Times square, brother sits in jail
Yes sistеr’s hustling on Times
Square, my brother, my brothеr sits in jail
Mama’s trying to make a living, with a mop and pail
No heat in the pipes, it’s down to five below
No heat in the pipes, it’s down to five below
Seven kids in one room, where am I gonna go
Sittin’ up in high school, sniffing that airplane glue
Sittin’ up in high school, sniffing that airplane glue
I got high for five, now I’m feelin’ blue
Cop from the youth squad, the kids all call him “Batman”
This cop from the youth squad, kids all call him “Batman”
If any comes to talk to you, you better speak good American
Now the rats playin’ in the kitchen, cockroaches on the wall
Rats playin’ in the kitchen, cockroach on the wall
No more room for people
Everyday you see in the papers, where the big shots steal and rob
Everyday you see in the papers, some big shots steals and robs
Me I’m just a poor lousy J-D, looking for some poor lousy job
J-D’s a home made product, that’s what the papers all say
J-D’s a home made product, that’s what the papers all say
How can you be a home made product, when you haven’t got a home anyway
