my own way

Hey Katy, I was cruising to work in the sunshine today listening to "My Own Way" from "Rio", and I was just wondering about the funky/rap lyrics at the end of the song. Were they all ad-libbed? Is it just Simon or are other band members involved too? And lastly, what the heck are they saying? >
Just wondering... Dave Bara

HI DAVE. IT WAS ONLY SIMON DOING THE AD-LIBBING. I ASKED HIM WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT AND HE SAID: "As far as I can remember, it was all about the original "Peppermint Lounge" on 45th between 6th and Broadway in New York City."
