This song is inspired by New York in the 1960s, Frank O'Hara's poem Song, Laura Nyro's sound world, and the film Rosemary's Baby.


Isn't it pretty
In the city?
Haven't our friends come
To shine on you and me?
And aren't we precious?
Precious good and young in the city?
You don't believe in witches do you?

Didn't I buy you
A cape and cane?
Didn't you wear them
On Christmas day?
But isn't now summer?
And don't you look a little foolish?
You don't believe in witches do you?

And won't we see a sad-faced boy?
And won't he be fun to fix?
Hasn't he forgotten all of the joy and fun and laughter life can bring?

You don't believe in witches do you?
You don't believe in witches do you?
You don't believe in witches do you?
Well there are no witches here
So say yes with me
