    They broke your toys this morning, Henry
    Rode your board right into dust
    Surrounded you with strangers who you could not trust
    And then they had the gall
    To write your name up on the girls' room wall
    And send you out to Maria
    Who spoke of babies and all
    And wanted to shoot your joy
    It's a hard world when you're the new kid in town
    Ain't it, Henry Boy

    Well the North side is for diamond-studded woman
    Subtly selling their wares
    And the West side is for debutantes
    And would be millionaires
    Oh the East side is for lost boys
    Who know their moves too well
    The South side is for gamblers, Henry Boy
    The train stops once for Hell
    It's a hard world when they're forcing you
    To live your life out on Broadway
    But Henry I'm sure you're gonna like it well
    The constellation she points to Gate Eleven
    That's where you got your connections
    Let me take a look inside my magic book
    I don't think you're beyond my inventions
    Oh these doctor's appendages I'm giving you for wings
    I'm sure it'll meet the occasion
    I'm gonna mix you some magic, you'll spittin' sparks
    And ready for the invasion

    Oh and the Milky Way's a trip for dippers
    They saw ya coming a mile away
    In the amusement park you'll get clipped by rippers
    Hiding behind candy 'cades
    In the alleyway you'll get ripped by strippers
    All who know your name
    In the stalls sit the soldier-boy kissersOn leave for just a day
    And Henry couldn't take it
    He's gonna be a submariner
    Riding underground for the Pope
    Gonna stand on the corner of Broadway
    And scream: "Up 'scope"
