Hello, my name is Oliver and I'm gonna tell you a story,
It's about a young girl...

She's only fifteen years old and has blonde hair
and blue eyes,
She lives with her parents in New Jersey and they
love her very much.
And one night, she and her friends decided,
They were going to come to New York City.
"My parents are away and I'll take their car,
They will never know. We're gonna have a great
time!" she said.

And they drove over the George Washington Bridge,
And drove downtown to the Limelight.
"Wow, look at the line." "Don't worry,
I know the guy at the door, we'll get in."
And they did. "So many people,
Look at that guy's shoes...they must be a mile high."
And she turned around and bumped into a really
cute guy.

They had a good time, they danced for hours and hours,
And she had a few drinks too.
"Hey," he said, "My roommate's not home,
And, well, I was wondering if you wanna, you
Come to my place? I just don't wanna, I just
don't wanna be alone."
And she said "Yes."

So they got into a taxi and went to 3rd Avenue
and 11th Street,
To The NYU dorm rooms and went upstairs and sat
on his bed.
And he said, "Take this pill..." and she did.
And then she said, "What did you just give me?"
"Ecstasy." he said.

And then...he fucked her all night, fucked her all night,
Fucked her all night, fucked her all night...
It's just one night in NYC, one night in NYC,
One night in NYC, it's just one night in NYC.

    General CommentThis is one of the scariest songs I've ever heard, I was in shock when I first listened to it, it's terrible!! I've forbidden myself to listen to it at night, otherwise I think I won't be able to sleep... But I just did, cause I had to check it to post the lyrics, and it's 4 a.m. here... :(

    General CommentYeah well, if you have the mp3 file you should know what I mean. They make it sound a lot worse, it's like you're watching an horror movie or something... :/

    General CommentI remember 1st hearing this song on the radio back in the early 2000's, back when broadcast radio in the NYC area embraced something more than teen pop, adult contemporary, hip hop and spanish radio - back wehn it was possible to hear a song for the first time and not know in the first few seconds what kind of song it would be. This wasn't a great song, I'm not even sure it's even a very good song, but grabs you at that surprise/horror ending. "Wiat - what did I just drink!??". I actually went to NYU (class of 93) - I was at the other 3rd ave dorm (13th street). One thing I never quite got - he slips her X and then spend the rest of the night...well, we know what he did. Is that what X is for? he song makes it sound like a date-rape drug.
