There was Ebbetts Field, Prospect Park, & Coney Island, to name a few
Always something to do in Brooklyn, some were old & some were new
To impress a girl you did not take her to the local “ITCH” .
You went to the Brooklyn Fox, Paramount, Albee, it was easy to make a switch
Downtown Brooklyn had the theaters all so close at hand
If one was full you just walked to the next no long walk on the land
Maybe your Church was having a dance, well supervised for sure
If someone really misbehaved they were quickly shown the door
The memories of growing up were great in Park Slope
Even if you were broke, you did not give up hope
If nothing else your friends were around so hang out and brag aloud
Of all your conquests true or false, it made no difference to your crowd
And so I salute the neighborhood so grand
The slope should be saluted very loud with a band!!!
