Sung to the tune of “Silver Bells”
The aroma’s benzene!
As we stroll through this quaint part of Gotham.
So much hist’ry –
Makes one misty –
For so much of it’s gone
In a neighborhood that once was awesome.
On Bleecker Street
Gas fumes secrete –
It’s Christmas time in the future.
The nightclub scene
Is sparse and lean –
It’s Christ-a-mas 2-ought-14
What a shambles
As we ramble
Up to Gansevoort Street
Passing so many empty apartments.
Seems the pipeline
Took our lifelines,
Our clean water and air
And a few landmark buildings to boot.
Join us Saturday the 14th at 5:30
Monday the 16th and Thursday the 19th at 7:30
Under the iconic Washington Square Arch…if it’s still there!
