"New York City" as written by and Marc Bolan....
Took myself outta New York City
But New York won't leave me alone
I found everything I needed there
In a Deli right down the street
It's always in my blood
The last place I felt at home
Chewing up the great Big Apple
You learn to love the smell of the streets

THERE'S ROCK 'N' ROLL IN NEW YORK CITY
AND LOTS OF THINGS TO GET ON DOWN
LIFE CAN GET HARD IN NEW YORK CITY
BUT I'LL BE BACK TO ROCK THAT TOWN
JUST STICK AROUND

Either I had nails for breakfast
Or the day just wasn't right
Face to face with sheer brutality
Concrete cold reality
Part of me just couldn't stay
Part of me just can't break away
Survivin' New York City
Is an impressive fact indeed

THERE'S ROCK 'N' ROLL IN NEW YORK CITY
AND LOTS OF THINGS TO GET ON DOWN
LIFE CAN GET HARD IN NEW YORK CITY
BUT I'LL BE BACK TO ROCK THAT TOWN
JUST STICK AROUND
