Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out on Broadway) Lyrics

Artist Billy Joel

I've seen the lights go out on Broadway- I saw the Empire State laid low. And

life went on beyond the Palisades, They all bought bright Cadillacs- And left

there long ago. We held a concert out in Brooklyn- To watch the Island bridges

blow. They turned our power down, And drove us underground- But we went right on

with the show... I've seen the lights go out on Broadway- I saw the ruins at my

feet, You know we almost didn't notice it- We'd see it all the time on

Forty-Second Street. They burned the churches up in Harlem- Like in that Spanish

Civil War- The flames were everywhere, But no one really cared- It always burned

up there before.... I saw the lights go out on Broadway- I watched the mighty

skyline fall. The boats were waiting at the Battery, The union went on strike-

They never sailed at all. They sent a carrier out from Norfolk- And picked the

Yankees up for free. They said that Queens could stay, They blew the Bronx away-

And sank Manhattan out to sea.... You know those lights were bright on Broadway-

But that was so many years ago... Before we all lived here in Florida- Before

the Mafia took over Mexico. There are not many who remember- They say a handful

still survive... To tell the world about... The way the lights went out, And

keep the memory alive....
