The Lyrics

The final prequel
They said it takes a lot to keep yourself at beet
In every clock, there rest a one time star
But if we lift the support into dancing feet,
Well, we could generate a lot of heat
On 42nd Street
Oh oh, on 42nd Street

We're gonna have little activity
Before they know the revival was delayed
We're gonna stick it to 'em nice and fast
On 42nd Street

Oh yeah!

( Instrumental Interlude )

On 42nd Street
(repeat and fade out)
Based on a play revival

Whats with all the low votes and no comments? Must admit that for all the Billy Joel songs I have done I DKTOS on this but did mange to find a really bad partial copy of a live concert on this. The parody looks OK to me...

"Well, we could generate a lot of heat"
So why this boy they beat?

I'm fiving this if only to counterbalance the negative feedback.

"On 42nd Street"
Oh, Oh, This ones so Short & Sweet

Is this the same 42 Street, referenced in the equally awesome power ballad, by the Scorpions in their epic number, "the Zoo"?
