Standing on the corner
We was waiting for Jerry to land
Singing, "Have a marijuana if you can"
And we found that he was real
Up come a policeman shoved us up the street

New York City
New York City
Que pasa, New York?
Well down to Max's Kansas City
With the Elephants Memory Band
As the news spread around
And we played some funky boogie
Singing, "Long Tall Sally's a man."
Singing, "God's a red herring in drag!"
[Chorus: x2]
Well we did the Staten Island Ferry
Played the Fillmore and Apollo for freedom
Just a cycling through the Village
Well nobody came to bug us
So we decided to make it our home
We gonna jump and shout
