I took a trip to Harlem to see where my
Lonely angel's gone, all winter long
Now where'd she get those wings from and
My god from where'd she get those limelight coloured eyes.

I know, you know this is just a dream,
But come Friday night that angel's gonna wake me
And then the only thing I'll want in this whole world,
Is for her to be my New York City Summergirl

This must be what true love's like,
She's flowing up and down and round my simple mind
From far beyond the ocean, the siren's cry:
"Run, my chicken, run down rainbow one"

She's blowing kisses in my dreams,
They settle down upon my shivering sailor heart
They tell me just where I need to be,
And now I'm pretty sure the city's the place to start

I know you were never meant to be
Walking with me in the cold on the New street,
Still the only thing I want in this whole world
Is for you to be my New York City Summergirl

New York, you're my New York Summergirl
These days, won't come round no more I'm sure,
So baby let's fall in love

I've taken that long way round,
To meet you in your prime, darling,
Just let your hair down low, baby,
And dance like you'll dance no more

New York, you're my New York Summergirl
You know, it's your heart I'm gunning for

The taste of fruit from distant gardens
Makes it hard, I can't deny
To fall in love on Monday morning, with the
Plain red dirt, dressed up all in white
