Elton John - "Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters Part Two Elton John" lyrics

I used to think that New York City
Fell from grace with God
And innocence abroad
Waged a war for the underdog
And Central Park looks like a Christmas card
And the madness that makes this city hard
I just looked beyond the bagman
When the snow falls
Somewhere out beyond a chain link fence

I heard a basketball
Inner city prisoners
Argue for the right of self-defense
But there's a fast break
Just focus on the brush strokes
And every work of art wakes something in the soul
And the bouquets that the dancers hold

Standing in the shadow of Miss Liberty
Yeah Mona Lisa's getting older
Spanish Harlem still sounds good to me
Down through Little Italy
While I walk along the west side
Searching for the city that
That took away the kid in me
