My brother made a steelydanesque song, these are the lyrics. Never been sung though.
NYC, 12.15
Mannahatta serving light cuisine
Better lose that gun, son, if you wanna be free
Drop it to those
Panhandlin' Russians down on Avenue D

Tonight's the night
The city won't get no sleep
This street is ours
The lights, they're yours and mine to keep
If I go down, make sure they go down even harder
This town is murder, this is New York By Night

Johnny, pour some bourbon in that strawberry shake
You oughta know the mayor - he was on the take
There's German sitcom on the skyscraper screen
It's never funny even if you get what they mean

Tonight's the night…

New York Bay, 3.18
Fuss 'n' commotion like you've never seen
Frankie the Bastard found a black garbage sack, it was
Mayor Morales with a slug in his back

Tonight's the night...
