… a world of its own,
The streets where we played,
The friends on every corner were the best we ever made.
The backyards, and the school yards
And the trees that watched us grow,
The days of love when dinner time was all you had to know.
Whenever I think of yesterday,
I close my eyes and see,
That place Just Over The Brooklyn Bridge
That will always be home to me.
It’ll always be home to me.”
(by Art Gartfunkel)
“Well, I had me a girl with the golden curls, she vowed to treat me right.
But here I am and I’m all alone on the Brooklyn Bridge tonight.
A thousand thoughts run through my mind as I watch the city lights.
My love is gone, I’m all alone on the Brooklyn Bridge tonight.
Well, it really has been a blue blue day and the water is cold in East River Bay…”
(by Mel Tillis)
