Another day, another Lana Del Rey song has been released onto the web.

Though the title track of the record, “Ultraviolence” has been making its rounds on the web over the past week, the new track is titled, “Brooklyn Baby.” The song will be featured on the songstress’ upcoming and much-anticipated new album which is set to be released on June 17, after much secrecy until late last month.

Full lyrics for the track can be seen under the video.

BROOKLYN BABY Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
They say I’m too young to love you
I don’t know what I need
They think I don’t understand
The Freedomland of the seventies
I think I’m too cool to know ya
You say I’m like the ice I freeze
I’m churning out novels like
Beat poetry on Amphetamines
I say
I say

[Chorus]
My boyfriend’s in the band
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed
I’ve got feathers in my hair
I get down to Beat poetry
And my jazz collection’s rare
I can play most anything
I’m a Brooklyn baby
I’m a Brooklyn baby

[Verse 2]
They say I’m too young to love you
You say I’m too dumb to see
They judge me like a picture book
By the colors like they forgot to read
I think we’re like fire and water
I think we’re like the wind and sea
You’re burning up, I’m cooling down
You’re up, I’m down
You’re blind, I see
But I’m free
I’m free

[Chorus 1]

[Bridge]
I’m talking about my generation
Talking about that newer nation
And if you don’t like it
You can beat it
Beat it, baby
You never liked the way I said it
If you don’t get it, then forget it
So I don’t have to fucking explain it

[Chorus 2]
And my boyfriend’s in a band
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed
I’ve got feathers in my hair
I get high on hydroponic weed
And my jazz collection’s rad
I get down to beat poetry
I’m a Brooklyn baby
I’m a Brooklyn baby

[Outro]
Yeah my boyfriend’s pretty cool
But he’s not as cool as me
Cause I’m a Brooklyn baby
I’m a Brooklyn baby
