Neighborhood

This song is by David Byrne and appears on the album Look Into the Eyeball (2001).

Funky beats, Barrow Street
Walking with your dog
I see you, you see me
Then we stop and talk
Later on, some cafe
Thinking what you said
Children laugh, telling jokes
Till their eyes are red

The people feel so good, yeah
Say, boy, say, girl
All in my neighborhood, yeah
Say, boy, say, girl

We got peace, love, and monkey business
Gonna reach the very top
There'll be pride, hope, and Sunday mornings
All the things I'm thinking of
We could change the world, my love
In the night while we are sleeping
The power's in my neighborhood

Liquor store, stop and shop
Old folks sit outside
Restaurants and laundromats
And she's still on my mind
April, May, June, July
August comes around
Pretty soon, a year's gone by
And we're still hanging out

The people feel so good, yeah
Say, boy, say, girl
All in my neighborhood, yeah
Say, boy, say, girl

We got peace, love, and monkey business
Gonna reach the very top
There'll be pride, hope, and Sunday mornings
All the things I'm thinking of
We could change the world, my love
In the night while we are sleeping

Now the rich get richer
And the poor stay poor
And folks get restless
If it don't change soon
But there's a sweet sensation
Turnin' bad to good
And things get better
In my neighborhood, neighborhood
Neighborhood

So burn on
You little candle
Put your light into my head
There's a lone wolf
He's on the mountain
He's the friend you never had

We got peace, love, and monkey business
Gonna reach the very top
There'll be pride, hope, and Sunday mornings
All the things I'm thinking of
So come on down
Come on, come on
Come on down
Come on, come on
Come on down
Come on, come on
Come on down
