Song Lyrics

In New York freedom looks like too many choices
In New York I found a friend to drown out the other
voices
Voices on the cell phone
Voices from home
Voices of the hard sell
Voices down the stairwell
In New York, just got a place in New York


In New York summers get hot, well into the hundreds

You can’t walk around the block without a change of
clothing
Hot as a hairdryer in your face
Hot as a handbag and a can of mace
New York, just got a place New York

New York / New York
New York / New York

In New York you can forget, forget how to sit still

You tell yorself you will stay in
But it’s down to Alphaville

New York, New York, New York, New York
New York, New York, New York, New York

New York
New York

The Irish been coming here for years
Acting like they own the place
They got the airport, city hall, concrete, asphalt,

They even got the police
Irish, Italians, Jews and Hispanics
Religious nuts, political fanatics in the stew,
Living happily not like me and you
That’s where I lost you… New York

New York, New York, New York
New York

New York
New York

In New York I lost it all to you and your vices
Still I’m staying on to figure out my mid wife crisis

Hit an iceberg in my life
But yeah I’m still afloat
Ya lose your balance, lose your wife
In the queue for the lifeboat
You gotta put the women and children first
But you’ve got an unquenchable thirst for New York

New York, New York, New York
New York, New York

New York

In the stillness of the evening
When the sun has had its day
I thought I heard you whispering
Come away child

New York

Ya bu bu da da
Ya bu bu da da
Ya bu bu da da
(So miss the call)

New York
New York

New York
