New York

 

In New York freedom looks like

Too many choices

In New York I found a friend

To drown out the other voices

 

 

Voices on a cell phone

Voices from home

Voices of the hard sell

Voices down a stairwell

In New York

Just got a place in New York

 

 

In New York summers get hot

Well into the hundreds

You can walk around the block

Without a change of clothing

 

 

Hot as a hair dryer in your face

Hot as handbag and a can of mace

New York

I just got a place in New York

 

 

New York New York

 

In New York you can forget

Forget how to sit still

Tell yourself you will stay in

But it's down to Alphaville

 

 

New York

New York, New York

 

 

New York, New York

New York

 

 

The Irish been coming here for years

Feel like they own the place

They got the airport, city hall

Asphalt, asphalt

They even got the police

 

 

Irish, Italians, Jews and Hispanics

Religious nuts, political fanatics in the stew

Happily not like me and you

That's where I lost you

 

 

New York

New York, New York

New York

New York, New York

 

 

New York

New York

 

 

In New York I lost it all

To you and your vices

Still I'm staying on to figure out

My midlife crisis

 

 

I hit an iceberg in my life

You know I'm still afloat

You lose your balance, lose your wife

In the queue for the lifeboat

 

 

You got to put the women and children first

But you've got an unquenchable thirst for New York

 

 

New York

New York

New York, New York

 

 

In the stillness of the evening

When the sun has had its day

I heard your voice whispering

Come away now

 

 

New, New York

New...

New York

 

 

New York
