(riff 1) C G
Come see the vampires of New York, a-ah
(riff 1) C G
Come lose your mind in Central Park, a-ah
 CG
        But don't leave your soul behind, a-ah

(riff 1) C G
Come take in 8th street after dark, a-ah
(riff 1) C G
Such peculiar people you'll remark, a-ah
 CG
        You might even see a murder, a-ah

 FG
And all the whores on Bleecker Street
 C
They wear the blissful grin
 FG
Caused by the drugs they take
 CG
To relieve them of their sins, ah-oh

 CAmG
And "Oh-oh lord I think she's dying"
 CAmG
I heard somebody say, I think she's dying
 CAmG
And "Oh, oh lord I think she's dying"

(riff 1) C
Or, maybe she's already dead
 G
and maybe she's gone to Mars.
 C
 Maybe we could even write her epitaph
 G
in the stars.
 CG
It'd say "If you go away from here...
 CG
 if you go a million miles..."
 FCG
 Come downtown
 FCG
to see them go

(riff 1) C G
Into the den of the vampires of New York ha-hah

But please watch your step as you're
 C
getting off kids.


Am C D F G
