As I walked around the streets of your town
Tryin' not to bring myself down
The jeers of the insane
Bounce like bullets off my brain,
The subway is not the underground.
Oh, New York City, goodbye!
Oh, New York City, goodbye,
Goodbye, New York City!
Number-People rush through the dawn
With their Number-People faces on.
Times Square is not the word
For the sucking, squeezing herd,
The subway is not the underground.
Oh, New York City, goodbye!
Oh, New York City, goodbye,
Goodbye, New York City.

As I walked around the streets of your town
Tryin' not to bring myself down
Stoned here I find
I almost lost my mind,
The subway is not the underground.
Yeah, now New York — New York City goodbye,
Oh New York City, goodbye,
Goodbye, New York City, I'm goin' home,
Oh, I don't want to be in New York anymore, oh no.
