DR. BOOGIE

The sirens were a wailing on the night I came to town
The Yankees were a sailing, they shot the Rangers down
The yellow cabs were tailing, the air was full of sound and I thought of you



I shed a little tear for you on 72nd west
A quarter of a Century I believe you’re still the best
I sat down in the park side to take a little rest
And I thought I saw you



Doctor Boogie we meet at last
I’ve been searching for you for the past
Twenty one years or so, but I’m here at last
Doctor Boogie



Dakota looks so different they ripped the sidewalk up
The fella on the corner said they’ve finally had enough
Of the sicko’s and the losers who want to take a chunk of you home with them



So I head back to my board on Seventh Avenue
The people that I’ve met here, everybody knew
From Marble Hill to State Street they’ve all been touched by you as I have too



Doctor Boogie we meet at last
I’ve been searching for you for the past
Twenty one years or so, but I’m here at last
Doctor Boogie, Doctor Boogie



The streets were very quiet on the night I flew away
I turned to face the city, wave goodbye to Hudson Bay
The believers and the cynics, don’t matter what they say, you never went away

Doctor Boogie we meet at last
I’ve been searching for you for the past
Twenty one years or so, but I’m here at last
Doctor Boogie
