"I Love New York" as written by and Stuart Price . Madonna....
I don't like cities
But I like New York
Other places make me feel like a dork

Los Angeles is for people who sleep
Paris and London, baby you can keep

Other cities always make me mad
Other places always make me sad
No other city ever made me glad
Except New York
I love New York
I love New York
I love New York

If you don't like my attitude
Then you can F off
Just go to Texas
Isn't that where they golf?

New York is not for little pussies who scream
If you can't stand the heat
Then get off my street
Get off of my street
Get off my street
You get off of my street
Get off my street
You get off of my street
Get off my street
Just get off my street

Other cities always make me mad
Other places always make me sad
No other city ever made me glad
Except New York
I love New York
I love New York
I love New York
I love New York

    General CommentThose are some hardcore lyrics. I could never, ever write anything as profound as that. I bet it took the genius of about 30 writers to create this work of art.

    General CommentIt's what the song is about not if you like the lyrics or not. Clearly it's about loving New York. A song doesn't have to have complex lyrics you know. I don't love New York but i like this song. : )

    General Commentthank you Alexis507. you said it better than i could. once again, M clearly stated (before the record was even released) that it wouldn't be a good idea to try to decipher any of the lyrics off of COADF because it's a DANCE RECORD. she also said, " well, who's wants to interpret lyrics while they're trying to dance?" so, this is why you should just enjoy the beautiful, genius music off of the incredible album.

    love,

    General CommentThis song is embarrassingly bad.

    If only confessions on a dance floor didnt have this song, I'd like it a lot more.

    This song makes me cringe.

    General CommentCool song, but seriously "if you don't like my attitude...then you can eff off!" *cringe*

    I kind of get the impression the lyrics are kind of tongue-in-cheek...otherwise, c'mon, rhyming 'new york' with 'dork'...oh dear.
