TAR BEACH


WHEN SUMMER SIZZLES ENERGY FIZZLES
YOU CAN FRY AN EGG ON THE SIDEWALK
NEW YORK CITY COOKS YOU LIKE A GRIDDLE
IT’S TOO HOT TO MAKE SMALL TALK
THERE’S A PLACE I KNOW WHERE YOU CAN FIND ME
IT DON’T COST A DIME COME ON UP AN' JOIN ME

ON TAR BEACH OVERLOOKIN’ CITY STREETS
TAR BEACH LEAVE YOUR CARES BELOW
TAR BEACH IF YOU WANT TO BEAT THE HEAT
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO-OH-OH
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO

WHEN MIDDAY SWELTERS PAVEMENT’S MELTIN'
YELLOW TAXI CABS GASP FOR BREATH
IT GETS SO HOT YOUR BRAIN FEELS LIKE POPPIN’
EVEN MY SHADOW STARTS TO SWEAT
IF THE JERSEY SHORE’S NOT YOUR SCENE
CAN’T TAKE THE CROWDS COME ON UP AND JOIN ME

ON TAR BEACH OVERLOOKIN’ CITY STREETS
TAR BEACH LEAVE YOUR CARES BELOW
TAR BEACH IF YOU WANT TO BEAT THE HEAT
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO-OH-OH
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO

GOT MY SOUNDS GOT MY SHADES GOT MY COOLER GOT IT MADE
I COULD USE A LITTLE HELP WITH MY SUNTAN LOTION
SO TELL ME WHO NEEDS AN OCEAN

UP ON TAR BEACH OVERLOOKIN’ CITY STREETS
TAR BEACH LEAVE YOUR CARES BELOW
TAR BEACH IF YOU WANT TO BEAT THE HEAT
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO-OH-OH
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO

UP ON TAR BEACH OVERLOOKIN’ CITY STREETS
TAR BEACH LEAVE YOUR CARES BELOW
TAR BEACH IF YOU WANT TO BEAT THE HEAT
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO-OH-OH
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO-OH-OH
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO-OH-OH-OH
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO-OH-OH
TAR BEACH IS WHERE WE CAN GO
