lyrics

We took the rocket to the crypt
When he still lived on Franklin
I was so green
I was mesmerized by everything
And my first drink at a gay bar
Was an amaretto sour
CC's was still on Madison
And Thumper's was right across the street from it
The Bus Stop was so small
Nowhere to hide at all
I sat there with my sidecar
Shy but braver then than now by far
Piecora's was the spot
To eat before we got sloshed
I'd be swooning left and right
Staring holes in the checkered red and white

I never knew how new I was
I never knew how much things would change
I never dreamed that one day
They would try to drive us out of this place

The ghosts of old haunts buried under new construction
A face lift with a price
Bright new condos shining like candy lies
Most of them are long gone
Oral tradition carries on
But maybe if you're lucky
You can rise up from the dead just like Charlie

I never knew how new I was
I never knew how much things would change
I never dreamed that one day
They would try to drive us out of this place
