New York, I Love You
But you're bringing me down
New York, I Love You
But you're bringing me down

Like a rat in a cage
Pulling minimum wage
New York, I Love You
But you're bringing me down

New York, you're safer
And you're wasting my time
Our records all show
Be filthy but fine

But they shuttered your stores
When you opened the doors
To the cops who were bored
Once they'd run out of crime

New York, you're perfect
Don't, please don’t let it change
Your mild billionaire mayor's
Now convinced he's a king

So the boring collect
I mean all disrespect
In the neighborhood bars
That I’d dreamt I’d drink

New York, I Love You
But you're freaking me out
There's a ton of the twist
Fresh out of shout

Like a death in the hall
That you hear through your wall
New York, I Love You
You’re freaking me out

New York, I Love You
But you're bringing me down
New York, I Love You
But you're bringing me down

Like a death of the heart
Jesus, where do I start?
But you're still the one pool
Where I'd happily drown

And oh.. Take me off your mailing list
For kids that think it still exists
For the ones who think it still exists

And baby I'm wrong
And baby you're right
Maybe I'm wrong
And maybe you're right, ohh
Maybe I'm wrong
And maybe you're right
And Oh..

Maybe mother told you true
And there’s always be something there for you
And you'll never be alone

But maybe she's wrong
And maybe I'm right
And maybe she's wrong
And maybe I'm right
And maybe I'm right
And maybe she's wrong
And if so, let her……?
