Once upon a Time in New York City

Me and Cherry by Torgny Lilja


Once, I knew a girl in New York City.
Cherry was the cutest chick there'd ever been,
But she was just married. Say, ain't that a pity?
Dan wasn't mere the biggest man you'd ever seen,
He was also really mean.

And I think he'd almost been to prison. --
Now, that husband used to work 'til late at night.
Then he went to any place where people would listen.
When he finally came home, he liked to fight,
And the neighbors got a fright.
