Witness to History Lyrics

STREETSINGER
Yeah, they say if you were in attendance that
night, then you, my friend, were a witness to
history. Ah, but with a touch of mystery.
You see, before her final bow, Brooklyn would always sing the "unfinished lullaby"

STREETSINGER

decade. Oh, and people, let me tell you,

P.a.r.a...

PARADICE
...d.i.c.e 'cause I was born on with nothin' but a
pair-a-dice around my neck. And from that
pair-a-dice, I built me a paradise. And no one...
