Ain't No Man Manhattan

Ain't No Man Manhattan lyrics

Ain't No Man Manhattan

So you've got nothing much in common with the artist down in Red Hook
Who lost the place he works in so you could build some condos on the water
But he buys coffee from the coffee guy
Who's renting from the actor
Who's married to the doctor
Who is in the ER, trying to save your daughter
Ain't no man Manhattan, no island all his own
On Roosevelt or Staten
Ain't none of us alone
Your actions my reaction, in ways you won't expect
We're all in this together, yeah we all connect
Take the environment or housing
Human rights or education
Every issue is connected
To each person here there ain't no separation
Ain't no I in island, anywhere on earth
How much you love your life is
What every life is worth
Your answer is my question, my cause is your effect
We're all in this together, yeah we all connect
And we all somehow keep moving, even so
All of eight point two five million
All changing you in ways you might not know
Oh, ain't no man Manhattan, no island all his own
Or Roosevelt or Staten
Ain't none of us alone
We live in these collisions, these accidents arise
We somehow find each other in each other's eyes
So a kindergarten teacher helps a certain city planner
Meet a surgeon from Nebraska
And his best friend is a doctor
And the city keeps evolving
And people keep revolving
All of eight two point five million of us all
A different way for every single one
All turning and returning, fast and slow
And we somehow find each other
Even so
