    Db - Fm -x3-
    Db - Fm - Ab

Ab                                  Fm
They say I'm too young to love you
                         Db
I don't know what I need
                              
They think I don't understand
    Ab                  Gb         Ab
The Freedomland of the seventies
                                Fm
I think I'm too cool to know ya
                                Db
You say I'm like the ice I freeze

I'm churning out novels like
     Ab           Gb       Fm
Beat poetry on Amphetamines


     Db         Fm
I say... 
     Gb
I say...


         Db                   Ab
Well, my boyfriend's in the band
         Gb                       Db
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed
         Gb              Db
I've got feathers in my hair
       Gb            Fm
I get down to Beat poetry
        Db                Ab
And my jazz collection's rare
       Gb              Db
I can play almost anything
      Gb           Db
I'm a Brooklyn baby
      Gb          Fm
I'm a Brooklyn baby

Interlude:
    Db - Fm
    Db - Fm - Ab

Ab                                  Fm
They say I'm too young to love you
                             Db
They say I'm too dumb to see

They judge me like a picture book
       Ab                Gb             Ab
By the colors like they forgot to read
                                  Fm
I think we're like fire and water
                                    Db
I think we're like the wind and sea

You're burning up, I'm cooling down
       Bbm   
You're up, I'm down
       Bbsus2        Fm
You're blind, I see
           Db       Fm
But I'm free
         Gb
I'm free


         Db                   Ab

I get down to Beat poetry
        Db                Ab
And my jazz collection's rare
       Gb              Db
I can play almost anything
      Gb           Db
I'm a Brooklyn baby
      Gb          Fm
I'm a Brooklyn baby


Db                              Fm
I'm talking about my generation
                               Ab
Talking about that newer nation

And if you don't like it
        Bbm   Cm
You can beat it
Eb         Fm
Beat it, baby
Db                              Fm
You never liked the way I said it
                                    Ab
If you don't get it, then forget it
                                 Bbm    Cm    Eb   -C-
Cause I don't have to xxxxing explain it


       Db                   Ab

       Gb                  Fm
I get high on hydroponic weed
        Db                Ab
And my jazz collection's rare
       Gb                Db
I get down to beat poetry
      Gb           Db
I'm a Brooklyn baby
