"Opening/New York! New York!" as written by and Joe Dipietro Jimmy Roberts....
Come on, Gabey, hurry up!

Twenty-four hours!

Hey, why don't ya look where you're goin'.
You'd think it was your first time in New York!

It is!

New York, New York!
It's a helluva town!

We've got one day here and not another minute
To see the famous sights!

We'll find the romance and danger waiting in it
Beneath the Broadway lights;
But we've hair on our chests
So what we like the best are the nights
Sights! Lights! Nights!

New York, New York, a helluva town.
The Bronx is up, but the Battery's down.
The people ride in a hole in the groun'.
New York, New York, it's a helluva town!

Hey, Gabey! Gabey, look.

Gabey, it says here "There are 20,000 streets in New York,
Not counting MacDougal Alley the heart of Green-Witch Village,
A charming thoroughfare filled with"

Here we go again!

The famous places to visit are so many,
Or so the guidebooks say.
I promised Daddy I wouldn't miss on any.
And we have just one day.
Got to see the whole town
From Yonkers on down to the Bay.

In just one day!

New York, New York, a visitor's place,
Where no one lives on account of the pace,
But seven millions are screaming for space.
New York, New York, it's a visitor's place!

Hey! Look who's comin' back! It's Tom and Andy!

Hey, Tom, Andy! Hey, fellas, how are the New York dames?

Wonderful, I don't remember a thing!

Awful! I remember everything!

Manhattan women are dressed in silk and satin,
Or so the fellas say;
There's just one thing that's important in Manhattan,
When you have just one day;
Gotta pick up a date

Maybe seven

Or eight
On your way.

In just one day!

New York, New York, a helluva town.
The Bronx is up, but the Battery's down.
The people ride in a hole in the groun'.
New York, New York, it's a helluva town!!
