[Chorus]
    E
The faucets are dripping in old New York City
    A                        E
The faucets are dripping and oh, what a pity
    B7
The reservoir's drying because it's supplying
                             E
The faucets that drip in New York

[Verse 1]
    E
You can't ask the landlord to put in a washer
     A                       E
He'd rather you move than to put in a washer
    B7
The faucets are dripping, they sound in my ears
                                           E
The tap in the bathroom's been running for years

[Chorus]
    E
The faucets are dripping in old New York City
    A                        E
The faucets are dripping and oh, what a pity
    B7
The reservoir's drying because it's supplying
                             E
The faucets that drip in New York

[Verse 2]
E
There's a wild streak of green in the sink in the kitchen
   A                             E
It comes from the rill trickling out of the plumbing
    B7
The streams from the mountains, the pools from the lea
                                       E
All run from my faucet and down to the sea

[Chorus]
    E
The faucets are dripping in old New York City
    A                        E
The faucets are dripping and oh, what a pity
    B7
The reservoir's drying because it's supplying
                             E
The faucets that drip in New York

[Verse 3]
    E
You can't ask the landlord to put in a washer
    A                         E
You can't ask the landlord to mend the old stairs
   B7                        E
He takes in the rents and he lives in Miami
      B7                                      E
Where faucets don't drip and there's sun everywheres

[Chorus]
    E
The faucets are dripping in old New York City
    A                        E
The faucets are dripping and oh, what a pity
    B7
The reservoir's drying because it's supplying
                             E
The faucets that drip in New York

[Verse 4]
    E
The faucets are dripping, the landlord's content
     A                   E
With every new tenant he raises the rent
    B7                         E
The buildings can crumble, the tenants can cry
          B7                                        E
There's a shortage of housing, you'll live there or die

[Chorus]
    E
The faucets are dripping in old New York City
    A                        E
The faucets are dripping and oh, what a pity
    B7
The reservoir's drying because it's supplying
                             E
The faucets that drip in New York

[Verse 5]
        E
They're building some buildings and fine city centers
     A                          E
It's sure working hell with the low-income renters
        B7
They're jammed into rooms with the rat and the fly
                                                 E
Where the faucets all drip and the floor's never dry

[Chorus]
    E
The faucets are dripping in old New York City
    A                        E
The faucets are dripping and oh, what a pity
    B7
The reservoir's drying because it's supplying
                             E
The faucets that drip in New York
