    One minute I'm in Central Park      
 GFGF
    Then I'm down on Delancey Street    
 GFGF
    From the Bow'ry to St Marks     
 GFGF
    There's a syncopated Beat      

 GFGF
 Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo      
 GFGF
I'm streetwise,  I can improvise     
 GFGF
    Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo      
 GFGF
I'm streetsmart, I've got New York City heart

 EbA#
   Why should I worry?
 EbG
   Why should I care?
 EbA#
   I may not have a dime
 DEb
   But I got street savoire faire
 EbA#
   Why should I worry?
 EbG
   Why should I care?
 EbA#
   It's just bebopulation
 DEbEb7
   And I got street saviore faire

Em D*
The rhythm of the city
 C
But once you get it down
Em D*
Then you can own this town
 C
 You can wear the crown

 EbA#

I like to play this song half an octave below the original so it's easier to sing. Here
