Fangirl Karaoke: New York City

Fangirl Karaoke: New York City published on No Comments on Fangirl Karaoke: New York City

Okay, this one isn’t actually CTY canon…but it’s by They Might Be Giants, so it might as well be. The song is “New York City.” Again, Volume 7 spoiler warning!

I called you last week on the telephone
And you were glad to hear from me (but didn’t want it known)
You said, “Go out thru the front door! Kill those who would stop you.”
Now I cross the ocean who fight vampires and to help you

We met in your basement in a locked-up old cell
You were just a girl then, but a tough one, I could tell
You sent me to battle in the middle of the night
I crashed a plane, I beat Rip, it was the best night of my life

‘Cause everyone’s undead
In London, England
And all the town will be destroyed
When we’re through with things, and
The streets are paved with bodies
And there’s just so much to do
But the best thing about London, England is
Me and you

Alex Anderson, Captain Hans Günsche, that mad Major, Butler (who was Walter)
Tubalcain, Rip also, and shadows from longer ago
Catholic knights and lots of ghouls, noble Sir Integra (and she’s so cool…)

You told me to come back, just the other day–
Said, “The war is on us now, and you need to join the fray–”
I steered the boat, began to gloat — at last it’s gone this far
I’m two hours from London, England and I’m two hours from war

‘Cause everyone’s undead
In London, England
And all the town will be destroyed
When we’re through with things, and
The streets are paved with bodies
And there’s just so much to do
But the best thing about London, England is
Me and you
