"New York City Boy" as written by David Morales, Chris Lowe and Neil Tennant....
When you're a boy
Some days are tough
Lying on your bed
Playing punk rock and stuff
Home is a boot camp
You gotta escape
Want to go and wander
In the ticker-tape
You feel the deals is real
You're a New York City boy
So young, so run
Into New York City

New York City boy
You'll never have a bored day
Cause you're a New York
City boy
Where Seventh Avenue
Meets Broadway

The street is amazing
The hoochies unreal
Check out all the hardware
At the latest deal
Hear a song
That's the bomb!
If you don't get the mix
It's gone eighty-six
You feel the deal is real
You're in New York City

New York City boy
You'll never have a bored day
Cause you're a New York
City boy
Where Seventh Avenue
Meets Broadway
New York City boy
This is your reward day
Cause you're a New York
City boy
Where Seventh Avenue
Meets Broadway

Then as the evening falls
You can return its calls

You feel the deal is real
You're a New York City boy
So young, so run
Into New York City

    General CommentBasically, this song is describing the major parts of New York. If you listen to some of their other songs, you'll hear refrences to Broadway and such other New York places, such as in The Theatre. It's talking about the big city life of NYC and how there's an endless range of things to do around there, the shopping, the plays, the historical landmarks, and so on.
