Ok, ah, we're back again and of course you're listening to W.B.A.I. in New York and this program is labrish
My name is Hab? Salashi and we're speaking with Baba, or maybe Rash Baboa
Can I try and give a message? Hallo?
Go, go ahead man
Yeah, I just like to say, uhm, lets have some music now eh
Ok, ok, thank you
Yo right

Now lightning strikes in old New York
It may be dark but I wanna talk
It might rain, it might snow
There's too many things I got to know
If this is spring than it's time to sing
Never mind the l'il birdies wing
Look out, look out, old New York
New York's coming and New York talks
Hey, strike
Not once, strike, but twice
Get out your money, peel a slab
Roll some notes and hail a cab
Drive in church, drive in back
Drive down Seventh in a tank
Take in the sights, feel the breeze
See New York's one and only tree
It can be found in Garbage park
But don't inspect it after dark, no
Strike
New York
Lightning
Not once but twice
Accidental hike in the transit strike
Roller skate or ride a bike
Three to a car, Brooklyn Bridge
You won't get far if you're privileged
Graffiti Jack sprays in black
An Englishman, can he read it back?
Deli Joe, he ought to know
He runs the gang on Pastrami Row
Strike
Lightning
Strike
Because glass to glass, street to street
Buildings touch St. Peter's feet
From car to bar, from prez to shah
Everything is in the jar
The four winds blow 'cause the four winds know
Takes a special hustle to make a roll
Honey girl on her feet
I wish everything to make her sweet
(Strike) Strike
Yeah, strike hits twice
Not once but twice (Strike)
Ok, so roll
Ya'll
Serieus
Ya'll
From Harlem
Strike one
Lightning strike

Harlem slum to penthouse block
On every door I already knocked
There wasn't anybody that I didn't leave alone
Somebody lying under every stone
Everything that a man could need is in a bag down by my knee
That looks good and this ain't got seeds
Cheaper than booze down in the bowery
Lightning strike (Strike)
Old New York
Everything's light
Bumb, oh, he touched you there
(Strike) Strike
Hey ho, such a night
I'll see y'all when the lightning strike
A polaroid caught in the act
You're married too and that's a fact but I won't peek and I won't squeek
Down by the trucks on Christopher Street
It's Cuban Day
Oi Vey
Chinese New Year, let's call it a day
Look out, lightning strike
Tootsie
Fox, fox, what, what've you got?
Hey bully
Oh, strike
Lightning

Hey, Chi man
That melody is Puerto Rican
Hey Chi man, is what he's speaking
And there's the road down into London Town where many cars get broken down
It's the Westway from Ladbroke Grove
Runs down to Old Hounslow
Hash my brother, caught a fuff
Because, because you know it
Just thought I'd mention the new extention that run's down the 59th street intersection
Did you hear the news y'all?
London Town on the Broadway
Strike
