Demented New York athletes staggering round the block Deformed Chicanos pour in, Chicago's rolling stock Digital bathrooms drilling for furs Surgical stockings marked his and hers Guggenheim attitudes abck to back With Jewish Baroque No way street - no way street Happy to see you, you have a nice day!
