<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">"The Cold Heart of the Big Apple," is an account of New York City's greatest rivalry-mob bosses <span style="color: #000000;"><a href="https://www.nationalcrimesyndicate.com/?s=vito+genovese"><span style="color: #000000;">Vito Genovese </span></a></span>and Frank Costello's battle to rule the Luciano crime family. Vito Genovese was one of the most feared gangsters of all, while Frank Costello was more of a businessman and political fixer. Genovese was handed the position of boss when Lucky Luciano was deported to Italy, but after a year at the top, Vito himself had to flee the country to avoid prison. Frank Costello was next in line and&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">successfully headed the family until Vito returned to NYC and wanted the family back...&nbsp;</span></p>

Lyrics

<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">IN THE COLD HEART OF THE BIG APPLE</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">IN THEM BACKROOMS AND SOCIAL CLUBS</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">WHERE THEY SMOKE CIGARS DRIVE BIG BLACK CARS AND MAKE THEIR BONES IN BLOOD</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">THERE WAS A FIGHTIN MAN NAMED VITO</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">THE MAN WHO HAD THE DIRTY WORK DOWN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">THEM STREETS WAS ROUGH AND WHEN IT CAME TO TOUGH</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">IT WAS VITO WHO WORE THE CROWN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">AND OH IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR WORD TO GET AROUND</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">IN THE COLD HEART OF THE BIG APPLE</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">AIN'T NO FOOL TRY TO TAKE HIM DOWN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">BUT TOO MUCH POWER A LITTLE TOO MUCH FUN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">A HAIR TRIGGER SON OF A GUN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG BEFORE THE COPPERS HAD HIM IN A CLUTCH</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">TO KEEP THAT MONEY IN THE BANK</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">THE FAMILY HANDED DOWN TO "UNCLE FRANK"</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">A GAMBLIN MAN WHO HAD THAT MIDAS TOUCH</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">AND JUST LIKE THAT VITO DID NOT FIT THAT FAMILY PLAN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">IN THE COLD HEART OF THE BIG APPLE</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">VITO WAS ON THE LAM</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">THEN ONE DAY IT ALL WENT DOWN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">VITO HE WAS BACK IN TOWN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">AND HE LET IT BE KNOWN HE COME TO GET THE FAMILY BACK</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">A SHOT RANG OUT A BULLET GRAZED FRANK'S HEAD</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">BEST RETIRE THAN TO WAKE UP DEAD</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">AND JUST LIKE THAT VITO GOT BACK THE CROWN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">AND OH SET EM UP WE'LL KNOCK EM DOWN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">IN THE COLD HEART OF THE BIG APPLE</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">THATS WHERE IT ALL WENT DOWN</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">AND IN THE COLD HEART OF THE BIG APPLE</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Special Elite', serif;">THAT OLD WHEEL STILL SPINNIN ROUND</span></p>
