Lana Del Rey France

Brooklyn Baby

They say I'm too young to love you,
I don't know what I need.
They think I don't understand,
The Freedomland of the 70s.
 
I think I'm too cool to know ya,
You say I'm like the ice I freeze.
I'm churning out novels like,
Beat poetry on amphetamines.
 
I said, I said.
 
Well, my boyfriend's in a band,
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed.
I've got feathers in my hair,
I get down to Beat poetry.
 
And my jazz collection's rare,
I can play most anything.
I'm a Brooklyn baby,
I'm a Brooklyn baby.
 
They say I'm too young to love you,
They say I'm too dumb to sing.
They judge me like a picture book,
By the colors like they forgot to read.
 
I think we're like fire and water,
I think we're like the wind and sea.
You're burning up, I'm cooling down,
You're up, I'm down, you're blind, I see.
 
But I'm free, I'm free.
 
Well, my boyfriend's in a band,
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed.
I've got feathers in my hair,
I get down to Beat poetry.
 
And my jazz collection's rare,
I can play most anything.
I'm a Brooklyn baby,
I'm a Brooklyn baby.
 
I'm talking 'bout my generation,
Talking 'bout that newer nation.
And if you don't like it,
You can beat it, beat it, baby.
 
You never liked the way I said it,
If you don't get it, then forget it,
'Cause I don't have to fucking explain it.
 
And my boyfriend's in a band,
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed.
I've got feathers in my hair,
I get high on hydroponic weed.
 
And my jazz collection's rare,
I get down to Beat poetry.
I'm a Brooklyn baby,
I'm a Brooklyn baby.
 
Yeah, my boyfriend's pretty cool,
But he's not as cool as me,
'Cause I'm a Brooklyn Baby,
I'm a Brooklyn Baby.
