GOODBYE NORMA JEAN ON 10th AVE




Goodbye Norma Jean
Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around you crawled
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set you on the treadmill
And they made you change your name
chorus
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did
Loneliness was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Hollywood created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid
Even when you died
Oh the press still hounded you
All the papers had to say
Was that Marilyn was found in the nude
[repeat chorus]
Goodbye Norma Jean
Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around you crawled
Goodbye Norma Jean
From the young man in the 22nd row
Who sees you as something more than sexual
More than just our Marilyn Monroe

Do I have a job for you


The recession is over, there is work on the mean streets on New York

This and the Staten Island ferry are about the only things that are free in New York

Some of my fellow New Yorkers at Coney Island on New Years Day 2011



Was this really necessary.


Balloon Lady floats down to the water


Does he hold 120 or 220 volts


Gorilla's in the beach


Just up from Louisiana, the BP clean up crew




Shoot the Freak would have had a lot of targets today



Some of the locals at Ruby's on the first day of the year and the last day for the legendary Coney Island watering hole.
