I’m at the park in Brooklyn Heights
That’s by the bridge and views Manhattan’s lights
A storm is brewing and it’s dark as night
In the distance lightning strikes
One could say that I’ve found the light
Because I’m underdressed and overstressed
Ass caressed by a New York bench
And I’m starting to get a little wet
But this doesn’t make me too upset
Because if I’m ever gonna be paying New York rent
You know I'm gonna treat myself to a jacket
