three miles out of the city on a freigher.
how i hoped this trip would get me back.
i was stowaway, caught a ride where the bay and the river meet.
meet just below the brooklyn bridge, the brooklyn bridge....

so tired of new york city, i had no money, the streets had
washed me clean.
when i saw the lights of the boats i planned my getaway,
and i threw away a life i didn't need, anymore.

(chorus) and i love the night when i'm on my way.
i love the night when i leave the bay.
my goodbye to all your blues is to
sing in spanish and shed my shoes....
! vete tristeza! , dejanme ya mis lagrimas,
hola felicidad, hola puerto rico!

down the coast at the most a day when they found me.
they radioed a boat to take me back.
locked in chains, what a pain when i see the river,
and the lights on the boats that will never take me back,
never take me back, anymore. (chorus)
