  • me and my tokyo we go out walking
    walking the block sundown 'til sun up
    dog and his mama collecting cans
    out by the freeway a girl and her best friend
    we don't make a killing
    but it's still a living to me

    sha-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la-la

    me and my tokyo we go out walking
    walking the block sundown 'til sun up
    it's only a burden when we think too much
    about his cup verses our cup
    their luck verses our luck
    then again what isn't
    if you look hard enough, i say
    we don't make a killing
    but it's still a living to me

    sha-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la

    and in the morn when we go down to bed
    we snore so loud we could scare off the dead
    la-ya-ya-ya

    sha-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la-la

    me and my tokyo walking the block
    collecting cans sundown 'til sun up
    greetings manhattan, you smell like the weekend
    we'll get our paws dirty then cash all our chips in

    and out on the boardwalk the kids call you skinny
    but you just ignore them
    you're the king of the city
    and we don't need anyone to think we're pretty
    guess i don't need much if i got you, baby
    you and the big new york city skyline
    that's all
    my kinda something

    'cause we don't make a killing
    but hey, it's still a living to me
    don't make a killing
    but it's still a living to me

    sha-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la-la

    to me
    sha-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la-la
    sha-la-la-la-la Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
