"New York City" as written by and H. Ledbetter....
I'm in new york city i'm gonna lower my line
new york city is a high timin'
new york city! woo! ain't that a city
new york city, baby, you've gotta know my line!

there's one thing folks i'd ask you to do
catch a busride ride up fifth avenue
new york city! woo! ain't that a city
new york city, baby, you've gotta know my line!

when you ride that bus keep it on your mind
ride that bus that sure gonna cost you a diamond
new york city! woo! ain't that a city
new york city, baby, you've gotta know my line!

when your gammy be callin', "it looks like rain"
sit down inside, catch you a subway train
new york city! woo! ain't that a city
new york city, baby, you've gotta know my line!

if i ever go down to georgia i'm gonna walk and talk
and tell everybody about the city of new york
new york city! woo! ain't that a city
new york city, baby, you've gotta know my line!

if i go down to lousiana i'll walk in tell
get on atop of the townbell and call a yellin'
new york city! woo! ain't that a city
new york city, baby, you've gotta know my line!

train's runnin' in the ground and it won't keep still
when i catch me a train to ride to sugar hill
new york city! woo! ain't that a city
new york city, baby, you've gotta know my line!

new york city, baby, you've gotta know my line!
