Coney Island Baby

(Thinking about Tony Soprano and Lou Reed)

Here at Coney Island,
It all looks shiny and new,
Pretty, clean and polished
For its post-Sandy debut.

Tourists on the boardwalk.
Locals on the sand.
Day camp kids are everywhere
Even a marching band.

It's summer in the city
But it doesn't last for long,
So come see Coney Island
Cuz some day it will be gone.
