My grandpa told me, 'Chip my boy,
There'll come a time when you leave home,
If you should ever hit New York,
Be sure to see the Hippodrome',
The Hippodrome?
Yeah, the Hippodrome.
Did I hear right? Did you say the Hippodrome?
Yes, you heard right, yes, I said the...
Hey what did you stop for?
It ain't there any more,
They tore it down, you know, a dozen years ago.
Oh, I wanted to see the Hippodrome.
What year is that guidebook anyway?
Uh, 1905.
Nineteen hundred and five, no wonder! Don't you realise a big city like this changes all the time? But there's one thing that doesn't change, kid. Come up to my place.
My grandpa saw the girly shows
And told me of one special pearl,
He said the hottest show in town
Was called the Flora Dora Girl,
Flora Dora Girl?
Yeah, the Flora Dora Girl.
Did I dig that, was that Flora Dora Girl?
Yes, you dug that, that was Flora...
What stop for did you hey?
You may not see that play,
That famous girly show closed forty years ago,
Come up to my place!
My grandpa said I'd see New York
In all its beauty and its pow'r,
From the city's highest spot,
The top the famous Woolworth tow'r,
The Woolworth tow'r?
Yeah, the Woolworth tow'r!
Hold the phone Joe, did you say the Woolworth tow'r?
I'm still ringing, yes I said the...
Did you stop for hey what?
That ain't the highest spot,
Since that old diaper's crate they built the Empire State.
Come up to my place!
