Lyrics
THE JAZZMAN
(NURREDIN)

I CAME TO NEW YORK CITY, A THOUSAND DOLLARS AND A DREAM
LORD,THE MONEY'S LONG SINCE GONE,AND I HAVEN'T DONE A THING
THEY WINED ME,THEY DINED ME,TOLD ME I COULD GO FAR
THEY SAID MAN,YOU'VE GOT WHAT IT TAKE TO BE A SUPERSTAR
THEN THEY TOOK MY DREAM,AND TORE IT ALL APART
BUT I'LL PLAY MY SONG FOR YOU

DOWN IN THE VILLAGE,EVERY NIGHT AROUND THIS TIME
YOU CAN HEAR,A HIP BALLADEER,FOR NICKELS AND DIMES
HE CAN MAKE YOU LAUGH,HE CAN MAKE YOU CRY ON PIANO OR GUITAR
AND PEOPLE WALK AWAY WONDERING WHY,THIS CAT AIN'T A STAR
YOU KNOW I MAY NEVER BE A STAR NO,
BUT I'LL PLAY MY SONG FOR YOU
GRACE!

I CAME TO NEW YORK CITY, A THOUSAND DOLLARS AND A DREAM
LORD,THE MONEY'S LONG SINCE GONE,AND I HAVEN'T DONE A THING
THEY WINED ME,THEY DINED ME,TOLD ME I COULD GO FAR
THEY SAID MAN,YOU'VE GOT WHAT IT TAKE TO BE A SUPERSTAR
THEN THEY TOOK MY DREAM,AND TORE IT ALL APART
BUT I'LL PLAY MY SONG FOR YOU
HEY YEAH,I'LL PLAY MY SONG FOR YOU
