NYC, What is it about you ?
You’re big
You’re loud
You’re tough

NYC, I go years without you
Then I can’t get enough
Enough of the cab drivers answering back
With language far from pure
Enough of frankfurters answering back
Brother, you know you’re in NYC
Too busy, too crazy Too hot, too cold, too late
I’m sold again on NYC

NYC The shadows at sundown
The roofs, that scrape, the sky
NYC, The rich and the rundown
The parade goes by
That other town has the Empire State And a mayor, five foot two
No other town in the whole forty eight can half compare to you

Oh, NYC You make ‘em all postcards
You crowd, you cramp You’re still the champ
Amen For NYC,
NYC The shimmer of Times Square
The pulse, the beat The drive,
NYC The city’s bright as a penny arcade
It blinks, it tilts, it rings
To think that I’ve lived here all of my life and never seen these things
Oh, NYC The whole world keeps coming By bus, by train
You can’t explain Their yen for Star to be NYC
Just got here this morning
Three bucks, two bags One me
NYC I give you fair warning
Up there in lights I’ll be Go ask the Gershwins or Kaufman
and Hart The place they love the best
Though California pays big for their art
Their fan mail comes addressed to NYC Tomorrow a penthouse
That’s way up high Tonight the “Y” Why not?
It’s NYC NYC You’re standing room only
You crowd, you cramp You’re still the champ
Amen For NY
Keep it quiet down there NYC Immediate seating, there is immediate seating Popcorn, what do you say to some popcorn? I haven’t had popcorn since Give in, don’t fight Good girl, good night Sleep tight in NYC
