COFFEE CART GUY
I GOT A CART AND AT THE START OF EV’RY DAY IT’S A SCENE
I GOT THE FIX YOU NEED, I GOT THE PURE CAFFEINE
SUGAR FOR YOUR BRAIN, CARBOHYDRATES FOR YOUR BELLY
I’M CHEAPER THAN YOUR STARBUCKS AND I’M
QUICKER THAN YOUR DELI (WHUT!)

THE POWER BROKER NEED HER EARLY MORNING BREW.

BOXMAN
BREW!

COFFEE CART GUY
THE OFFICE TEMP, SHE NEED A BAGEL, MAYBE TWO.

BOXMAN
TWO!

COFFEE CART GUY
THEY NEED A JOLT, OR THEY REVOLT WHEN THEY’RE MAKIN’ THE BLING
FOR SERVICE ON THE GO... I'M THE KING!


ALTHEA
WHO IS THE MAN
WHO KEEPS THE CITY MOVIN’?
WHO IS THE GUY
WHO HELPS YOU FIND YOUR GROOVE, AND
WHO IS THE ONE?
TRY DOIN’ WHAT HE DOES
CAN’T SURVIVE WITHOUT YOUR BUZZ...


SANITATION WORKER
SEE THE TRASH ON THE TRACKS
‘N GARBAGE IN THE STATION
I’M THE WARRIOR OF WASTE
THE QUEEN OF SANITATION
I KNOW YOU GOT PROBLEMS
AND I KNOW YOU GOT STRESS
BUT SOMEONE’S GOTTA CLEAN UP ALL YOUR NASTY ASS MESS

PIZZA GREASE DRIPPIN' OUT OF A BAG
RAT FECES, AN’ I'M ‘BOUT TO GAG
KIDS DROPPIN' CHURROS IN THE BURROUGHS,
BUT NOBODY KNOWS WHERE IT GOES, IT'S ME, YO WOAH OH OH

ALTHEA
WHO IS THE QUEEN
OF ALL THE NITTAY GRITTAY
AND WHO IS THE LADY
WHO KEEPS THINGS LOOKIN’ PRETTAY
AND WHO IS THE ONE
ALL ALONG THE BROADWAY LINE
SHE’S THE GIRL WHO MAKES IT SHINE

COFFEE CART GUY/SANITATION
KEEP IT GOIN’ NOW
KEEP IT GOIN’ NOW
THE WORLD KEEPS TURNIN’ AND WE’RE MOVIN’ IT ALONG NOW!
KEEP IT GOIN’ NOW
KEEP IT GOIN’ NOW
THE CITY’S GOT A RHYTHM, BETTER TUNE INTO THE SONG NOW!


CAB DRIVER

CAB DRIVER
YOU’RE SOAKED TO THE BONE, YOUR UMBRELLA IS FAILING
THE SUBWAY? FUCK IT! IT’S MY CAB YOU’RE HAILING.

TRAIN CONDUCTOR
YO! WHO CAN AFFORD YOUR METERS AND YOUR FARES?
WITH A METROCARD, I CAN GET YOU ANYWHERES
RUSH HOUR SURCHARGE? SON, WHAT’S THE DEAL?
DOWN IN THE TUNNELS, WE KEEPIN’ IT REAL 

CAB DRIVER/TRAIN CONDUCTOR/SANITATION WORKER
WE KEEP IT GOING NOW
WE KEEP IT GOING NOW
THE WORLD KEEPS TURNIN AND WE’RE MOVING IT ALONG NOW
WE KEEP IT GOING NOW WE KEEP IT GOING NOW
