The Sheik Of Avenue B

Fanny Brice sings The Sheik of Avenue B 

On the East-side of New York, On Avenue B.
Lives a guy creating talk, A wise-guy is he.
He has such a reputation, For making girlies fall;
Fat ones, small ones, thin ones, tall ones, He gets them all.

He's the Sheik of Avenue B, I'm telling you,
He's the champ of them all.
He's no bluff, He treats girls rough;
His hugs and kisses scare 'em,
He don't spare 'em,
You should see his Hebrew harem,
He wants them all to salaam when he goes by,
Rose Goldstein's husband salammed him in the eye,
Say! he acts like a real Arabian lord,
Since he bought a brand new second-hand Ford;
Don't speak! He's the Sheik of Avenue B.

All the boys are off their nut, They're jealous of him.
They would like the girlies, but, Their chances are slim.
If a fellow gets a girlie, She only lasts a day;
He walks be and winks his eye, and takes her away.

He's the Sheik of avenue B, I'm telling you,
He's the champ of them all.
Girlies sigh, For him they would die;
He gets a girl on Sunday, Leaves her Monday,
Some girls don't even last one day.
He takes them all to the swellest cabarets,
But it's the woman who pays! and pays! and pays!
Say! all the husbands there are scared of their lives,
When they go to work they lock up their wives;
Don't speak! He's the Sheik of Avenue B.

Skarhead "City Of Sleaze" (2010)



Lyrics (via MaxiLyrics.com)
A concrete jungle
Violence and pain
Come here innocent
You won't leave the same
Greedy hands better watch out
Payback's a bitch and that's what it's all about

Drugs money sex
Make the world go 'round
Kings at crime
Run this town
So beg for your life
And get on your knees
I'm the cure
And your the disease

The rotten apple
The city that never sleeps
New York, New York
Home of the sleaze
Dropped many suckers like you in my past
Scum like you don't deserve a second chance

Drugs money sex
Make the world go' round
Kings at crime run the town
So beg for your life
And get on your knees
I'm the cure and your the disease

Time Out New York Magazine (March 2012) "100 Best NYC Songs"

We must have missed this issue of Time Out New York magazine when it hit newsstands back in March 2012, wherein they compiled the "100 Best New York Songs."

Only 100?
We're over 200 here and we're still adding more.
Great cover photo though.

Lyrics
(via 6Lyrics.com)

We lead by example (example)
It's time to set the trend (to set the trend)
Once again

Stand up New York
Hardcore show your pride
Stand up New York
Hardcore be recognized

We're the New York state of mind
Our city one of a kind
Station World wide
We have enough for you all
I must pay my own most respect
To the scene that started it all

Hardcore show your pride
Stand up New York
Hardcore be recognized

Brooklyn are you with me?
Queens are you with me?
Strong Island are you with me?
Staten Island are you with me?
The Bronx are you with me?
Manhattan are you with me?
STAND UP NEW YORK
