"New York" as written by and Jason T/atkins Phillips....
She was a back street dancer out-a New Orleans
Been featured once or twice in the small magazine

Doing alright - yes
She's doing alright.
She's on Broadway
Yes
She's come a long way
Baby

And now she's a star. Ring on every finger and big fancy car
Doing alright - yes
She's doing alright
Got her name up in lights
She's a queen of the night.

You're in New York
You're a star.
A sensation
Yes
You are - in the money
And they're applauding you.
You're in New York
You're a star. . . .

You're a diamond studded lady and a race on the stage
You're known across the nation
I guess you got it made.
Doing alright
Yes
You're doing alright
You're on Broadway.
You get offers from the movies to appear on the screen
But you're sleeping on it
Baby
'Cause it's not quite your scene

Doing alright
Yes
You're doing alright

Got your name up in lights
She's the queen of the night.

You're in New York
You're a star. . . .
You're in New York
You're a star. . . .
