There it is, ladies and gentlemen, the Bronx is burning.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Bronx Is Burning.
My name is Benny Blanco from the Bronx. - You know me?
Yet I will look upon thy face again, My own romantic Bronx , and it will be A face more pleasant than the face of men. Thy waves are old companions, I shall see A well remembered form in each old tree And hear a voice long loved in thy wild minstrelsy.
