  • Lyrics
  • I saw a rainbow stretched across the ocean
    Crashed the Big Apple
    So I took a bite
    Found a taste I like
    But she bit me back

    I jumped across the ocean
    Found a Big Apple
    So I took a bite
    She teased me with a taste
    Laid my soul to waste
    Stabbed me in the back

    Hell's Kitchen is a DMZ
    I ain't never coming back, no
    Hell's Kitchen is a DMZ
    I ain't never coming back, child

    Pressure never stops
    Pressure never drops
    Lennon got fried
    Said it was a crime
    Said it was a pity
    No one even cried

    Pressure never stops
    Pressure never drops
    Lennon got fried
    Said it was a crime
    Said it was a pity
    No one even cried, cried, cried

    Oh, Hell's Kitchen is a crazy place
    I ain't never coming back, oh no no
    Hell's Kitchen is a crazy place
    I ain't never coming back

    Oh, New York City
    Oh, New York City, yeah, yeah
    New York City, yeah
    Oh, New York City, well, well

    Hell's Kitchen is a DMZ
    I'm never coming back, no
    Disneyland, trash can baby, yeah
    It'll give you a heart attack
    The Times Square shuffle, Manhattan flip
    Twenty four hour groove
    Working up a frenzy baby
    People push on through, yeah

    Listen boy
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    I jumped across the ocean
    Found a Big Apple
    So I took a bite
    She teased me with a taste
    Laid my soul to waste
    Stabbed me in the back

    Hell's Kitchen is a crazy place
    I'm never coming back, no no no
    Hell's Kitchen is a DMZ
    I ain't never, never, yeah

    Oh, New York City
    Wake up, yeah, in the New York City
    Well, New York City, yeah, yeah
    New York City
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Shake it up, do it now
    Shake it up, bells ringing
    I'm shooting on the hip now
    I'm shooting on the hip now, baby
    I'm shooting on the hip now
    Oh, New York CityWriter/s: MARC BOLAN
