"Wouldn't Have You Any Other Way (NYC)" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
I remember it like it was yesterday
Snow in the park and skaters on the ice
Long black cars standing side-by-side
Loading up the boys at night

Turned up our collars to the chill of the wind
Caught an innocent smile from a taxi at the lights
Not something you'd see on a New York street
It's such an uncommon sight

[Chorus]
But I wouldn't have it any other way
This city's got a thing about it, don't try to understand it
New York City I'd really like to stay
New York City I wouldn't have you
I wouldn't have you any other way

Oh the subway rumbled underneath
Italian lights where Joey Gallo died
And the man on the door down at 54's
Letting only the pretty inside

I'd wake with a stranger under the covers
Late in the day and longing for the night
Just like the snowfall there's so many bodies
But somehow it feels so right

[Chorus]

    General CommentNo comments on this? Wow. a self explanatory love song to Elton's favorite city. This song includes my all time favorite Bernie taupin lyric :

    Oh the subway rumbled underneath
    Italian lights where Joey Gallo died
    And the man on the door down at 54
    is letting only the pretty inside

    Fantastic imagery there
