You best believe I’m from New York City

You’re telling me “shut my mouth”
If I wasn’t kissing, you wouldn’t be around
You talk about faggots, little momma’s boy
You sit at home, you got a chaperone

You need an escort to take a piss
He holds your hand and he shakes your dick
You’re so pretty, suburban kitty
You think you’re gonna change, rearrange your city?

Little London boys
You’re little London boys
You’re little London boys
You think you’re gonna change me?
ha ha, ha ha ha, ha ha ha

Little rich kid, what do you know?
You had everything, don’t you think it don’t show?
I hide in the closet, just a facing the wall
Too much too soon, do you recall?

Have a holiday in the city
Here’s your souvenirs, vaseline pretty
You don’t need no junk, just LSD
You won’t get shot, shot by me

You’re little London boys
You’re little London boys
You’re little London boys
And I’m talking about the whole audience

Too bad the boys don’t know
And the girls they don’t go
And everybody just shows
You’re little

Little London boys
You’re little London Boys
You’re little London Boys
You’re little London Boys
You’re little London Boys
You’re little London Boys
You’re little
You’re little
Little London boys
You’re little London Boys
You poor little puppet
