(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
        But don't leave your soul be[C]hind, a-[G]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
        You might even see a mur[C]der, a-a[G]h

And [F]all the whores on B[G]leecker Street
They w[C]ear the blissful grin
Ca[F]used by the dr[G]ugs they take
To re[C]lieve them of their sins, ah-[G]oh
And "Oh-oh [C]lor[Am]d I think she's d[G]ying"
I heard somebody s[C]ay,[Am] I think she's d[G]ying
And "Oh, oh l[C]or[Am]d I think she's [G]dying"
(riff 1) C
Or, maybe she's already dead
and maybe she's gone to M[G]ars.
[C]Maybe we could even write her epitaph
in the st[G]ars.
It'd say "[C]If you go a[G]way from here...
[C]if you go a m[G]illion miles..."
[F]Come [C]down[G]town
to [F]see [C]them [G]go

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

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