And now I know
I thought I knew
In New York City
Until you've seen this trash can dream come true
And I thank the Lord
I thank the Lord there's people out there like you
While Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters
Turn around and say good morning to the night
But they can't and that is why

It's got a lot of songs to sing
I'll go my way alone

Rich man can ride and the hobo he can drown
I thank the Lord for the people I have found
While Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters
Turn around and say good morning to the night
But they can't and that is why

Spanish Harlem are not just pretty words to say
But now I know that rose trees never grow

Rich man can ride and the hobo he can drown
I thank the Lord for the people I have found
While Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters
Turn around and say good morning to the night
But they can't and that is why
They know not if it's dark outside or light
