I wrote this tune around a poem 'Bridges' by Joe solo

lyrics

The Brooklyn Bridge

Lyrics by Joe Solo, Music by Phil Odgers


"Morning Mr Arthur, I've come to fix the fridge"

He said "I've got a little magnet of the Brooklyn Bridge /

The ice cream melted, nothing much survived

We brought it back from New York

When me wife were still alive”


Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge,

That’s how… I… remember

the Brooklyn Bridge


“But where's me manners, would you like a cup of tea?

What did you say you're here to fix, the fridge, or the TV?"

I said: "I'm no good with tellies I'm here to do the fridge."

He said: "I've got a little magnet of the Brooklyn Bridge.


Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge,

That’s how… I… remember

the Brooklyn Bridge


“Take no notice of me, son, me mind's not what it was

I lose me way a lot these days, I know I do because

I hear me when I'm talking but there's gaps in what I say

Like when the rain stops under bridges as you drive a motorway


Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge,

That’s how… I remember

the Brooklyn Bridge


I hope the rain stops soon, the fridge man comes at three

Oh, where’s me manners, son? Would you like a cup of tea?

You'll have to drink it black, there’s no milk in this fridge

Look here, I've got a little magnet of the Brooklyn Bridge"


Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge,

That’s how… I remember

Brooklyn Bridge, The Brooklyn Bridge,

That’s how I remember her….

…the Brooklyn Bridge
