Bensonhurst Blues

Songwriters: ARTIE KAPLAN, ARTIE KORNFELD Bensonhurst Blues lyrics GOLDEN EGG MUSIC INC., THRICE MUSIC, INC.

Bay Parkway wonder You're such a success Your pretty secretary, ha She say you are the best Your face always smiling Say you sure paid your dues But I know inside You've got the Bensonhurst blues Those custom-made ciggies That you offer to me pretend And pretend to care about my family And those pictures on your desk All them lies that you abuse Do they know you suffer From the Bensonhurst blues Your grandmother's accent Still embarrasses you You're even ashamed Of the French you once knew You're part of the chance now They break you making the news But I know inside You've got the Bensonhurst blues But thanks for the lesson Cause the life that I choose Won't make me feel like living With the Bensonhurst blues And don't, don't try to write me And don't bother to call Cause I'll be in conference Merry Christmas you all
