The Harlem mammas they are laughing
They call me punk rock think they're cute
The pizza boys they keep on starin'
I guess they finally made it off their stoop

I don't even know and I don't even care x3

Oh yeah

      G         C
Since I've been hanging round
      G         C
Machines go up and down

Spray paint gospel on the beat

Another billboard reads
    G       C
Come to Miami Beach
    G       C                D
A man sells pretzels in the heat
Riding on the subway

Saints and sinners sweepstakes winners
Nine to five their smoking gun
Jazzman Jimmy's busked a million
Sometimes plays Duke Ellington for fun

I don't even know and I don't even care x3
Oh yeah

I've been hanging round
In the underground
One day I saw you in your seat
Past the transit cops
A three-card monty box
If I only had the guts to speak
Riding on the subway

Mother told me yesterday
     G                               D
The things that God would never say before
       C                         G                          D
We'll hang around the radio and listen to the status quo go on
I'm all right until Sunday night when

I keep going down
Took the local round
A soul confession in my sleep
Ain't no wishing well
Underneath the El
I still hope someday we might meet
Riding on the subway
