Come downstairs, Iím buzzing you
Come downstairs, I got nothing to do
Come downstairs now
Come downstairs now
Come downstairs now

You know thereís a legend and it goes like this
if you kiss the lamppost between 224th street and 225th
in the bronx
when itís a full moon
youíll be granted three wishes

but nobody does it
they donít believe in magical realism in the bronx
they donít even believe it exists in other places
but especially not in the bronx
come downstairs now
Iím buzzing you
itís a full moon
our wishes will come true soon

Do you know what Iíd wish for? Do you know what Iíd wish for?
Do you know what Iíd wish for? Do you know what Iíd wish for?

a 24-hour baskin robbins in my neighborhood
an elevator in my building so that I wouldnít have to walk up to the eighth floor
and also a dog
