DR BRUCE CAME TO TOWN
WITH HIS MEDICINE SHOW, HE SAID GATHER ROUND
I’VE GOT POTIONS TO HEAL YOU, JUST TAKE YOUR PICK
I CAN CURE YOU EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT SICK
I’M SO GLAD YOU CAME TO MY SHOW
NOW LET’S ALL WATCH MY VIDEO
I CAN BUILD A SHINING CITY IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR TOWN
JUST GIVE ME THE LAND, AND I’LL KNOCK SOME BUILDINGS DOWN
DON’T WORRY ABOUT ANYONE ALREADY THERE
WHEN THEY TAKE MY POTION, THEY WILL STAND UP AND CHEER

I’VE GOT GOBS OF MONEY, THERE’LL BE MILK AND HONEY
THERE’LL BE CASH, THERE’LL BE LOOT
YOU’LL ALL BE WEARING THREE PIECE SUITS
OH YEAH, GUARANTEED. I’M A WIZARD, CAN’T YOU SEE?

HOW DO I GET MY GRUBBIES, ON OTHER PEOPLE’S LAND?
I’LL PROMISE THEM THE NETS, THROW A BONE TO THE FANS
AND WHAT ABOUT THE HIGHBROWS WHO DON’T CARE TOO MUCH FOR SPORTS?
I’LL THROW IN FRANK GHERY, SO THEY WON’T TAKE ME TO COURT
I’VE GOT POLITICIANS, JUST PAID THEM THEIR FEE
BUT NOT TISH JAMES, SHE WON’T TAKE MONEY FROM ME

I’LL GIVE YOU ALL JOBS, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE SKILLED
JUST START A CLUB FOR ME, WHY DON’T WE CALL IT BUILD?
YOUR ACORN’S GONNA GROW INTO A MIGHTY OAK
‘CAUSE IT’S ONLY RICH YUPPIES WHO ARE GONNA GET SOAKED
ALL WE NEED NOW IS A REVEREND ON BOARD
WHO SAYS, “EMINENT DOMAIN IS THE WORK OF THE LORD.”

I’VE GOT GOBS OF MONEY, THERE’LL BE MILK AND HONEY
THERE’LL BE CASH, THERE’LL BE LOOT
YOU’LL ALL BE WEARING THREE PIECE SUITS
OH YEAH, GUARANTEED, IT’S ALL MAGIC CAN’T YOU SEE?
I’M GONNA HOUSE THE HOMELESS, GONNA FILL UP YOUR FRIDGE
AND IF YOU BELIEVE ALL THAT, I’LL SELL YOU THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE
OH YEAH, GUARANTEED. JUST HAND OVER YOUR DEEDS



back to top
I’M GONNA BUILD THE BIGGEST BUILDINGS THAT BROOKLYN’S EVER SEEN
AND I WON’T STOP AT ONE, HOW ‘BOUT SEVENTEEN?
I’LL CUT OFF YOUR AIR AND CUT OFF YOUR LIGHT
I’LL SAY YOUR BROWNSTONES ARE A TERRIBLE BLIGHT
YOU WON’T SEE THE WILLIAMSBURGH CLOCK ANYMORE
YOU’LL THANK ME FOR GETTING RID OF THAT OLD EYESORE

YOU THINK THERE’S ALREADY TOO MUCH TRAFFIC THERE
I’LL WAVE MY MAGIC WAND, WATCH IT DISAPPEAR
DON’T WORRY ABOUT POLLUTION OR THE HEALTH OF YOUR KIDS
AND PLEASE DON’T CONSIDER ANY OTHER BIDS
TOO BAD ABOUT YOUR SWEAT EQUITY
I DON’T SWEAT, I GET EVERYTHING FOR FREE

I’VE GOT GOBS OF MONEY, THERE’LL BE MILK AND HONEY
THERE’LL BE CASH, THERE’LL BE LOOT
YOU’LL ALL BE WEARING THREE PIECE SUITS
OH YEAH, GUARANTEED. DON’T LIFT THE CURTAIN, DON’T LOOK AT ME

THIS LEVER BLOWS SMOKE INTO YOUR EYES
OR YOU’D SEE THAT I AM WEARING A GREAT DISGUISE
THIS MIRROR HELPS MY PLANS LOOK SMALL
THIS POTION MAKES YOU FORGET ATLANTIC MALL
IT’S ALL SMOKE AND MIRRORS, YOU’LL BE MY FINANCIERS
IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS, THE PUBLIC’S GONNA PAY FOR THIS
OH YEAH, GUARANTEED, THERE’S NO LIMIT TO MY GREED
I WILL HOUSE THE HOMELESS AND FILL UP YOUR FRIDGE
AND IF YOU BELIEVE ALL THAT, THEN I’LL SELL YOU THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE
OH YEAH, GUARANTEED
