[Verse 1]
They say I'm too young to upendo you
I don't know what I need
They think I don't understand
The freedom land of the seventies
I think I'm too cool to know ya
wewe say I'm like the ice I freeze
I'm churning out novels like
Beat poetry on Amphetamines
I say
I say

[Chorus]
Well, my boyfriend's in the band
He plays guitar, gitaa while I sing Lou Reed
I've got feathers in my hair
I get down to Beat poetry
And my jazz collection's rare
I can play most anything
I'm a Brooklyn baby
I'm a Brooklyn baby

[Verse 2]
They say I'm too young to upendo you
wewe say I'm too dumb to see
They judge me like a picture book
kwa the colors, like they forgot to read
I think we're like moto and water
I think we're like the wind and sea
You're burning up, I'm cooling down
You're up, I'm down
You're blind, I see
But I'm free
I'm free

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
I’m talking about my generation
Talking about that newer nation
And if wewe don't like it
wewe can beat it
Beat it, baby
wewe never liked the way I alisema it
If wewe don't get it, then forget it
So I don't have to fucking explain it

[Chorus - Variation]
And my boyfriend’s in the band
He plays guitar, gitaa while I sing Lou Reed
I've got feathers in my hair
I get high on hydroponic weed
And my jazz collection’s rare
I get down to beat poetry
I'm a Brooklyn baby
I'm a Brooklyn baby

[Outro]
Yeah my boyfriend's pretty cool
But he's not as cool as me
Cause I'm a Brooklyn baby
I'm a Brooklyn baby
