Hudson died in Hudson Bay
The water took its victim's name
Now rivers rise toward riverside
To change their names again

A stranger walked in through the door
Said, "All apartments are pre-war"
We laughed and asked him for his name
He stayed until the end

We watched the Germans play the Greeks
He mocked the 99-year lease
Our fathers signed, which I declined
To try and comprehend

Over and over again
Are these never-ending visions
Over and over again
Like a prize that's changing hands

The time has come
The clock is such a drag
All you who change your stripes
Can wrap me in the flag

The legendary wooden gate
That first established real estate
Is lost to time like other crimes
That won this pleasant land

Over and over again
Are these neverending visions
Over and over again
Like a prize that's changing hands

The time has come
The clock is such a drag
All you who change your stripes
Can wrap me in the flag

Hudson died in Hudson Bay
But I was born on Sutton Place
The rising tide helped me decide
To change my name again

Some men tend to linger on
And some make haste from Babylon
Some will roam their ruined home
Rejoicing to the end

Over and over again
Are these neverending visions
Over and over again
Like a prize that's changing hands

The time has come
The clock is such a drag
All you who change your stripes
Can wrap me in the flag

The lines are drawn
The map is such a drag
All you who change your stripes
Can wrap me in the flag
