The first time I ever saw the New York Public Library
It lay in broken ruins
An astronaut and a cave girl were gazing in awe
Just before those damned dirty apes blew the world to hell
The second time I saw the New York Public Library it was really under the weather
Jake Gyllenhaal was waiting out the big freeze
Burning books (in a t0tally PC way)
Hoping his dad could make it through the wastes of Jersey and take him home
The third time I saw The New York Public Library
There were no real calamities at all
New York neither burned nor Froze
So I took some pictures and headed off to Grand Central Station.
