Lyrics-New York City

New York City

words & music copyright 2005 by Robert Mosci (Zographia Publishing) ASCAP

 

‘Woke up the sky was gray

A dreary dismal day

Turned to my friend to say

It’s time to get away

 

I’m ready for New York City

We’re going to New York City

New York City

Let’s go!

 

‘A greyhound got us there

It dropped us in Times Square

The crowds, the sound, the smell

A rocket self propelled

 

We landed in New York City

New York City

The frenzy of New York City

Toro!

 

 

‘We climbed the Empire State

Roamed Central Park by skate

Saw Broadway show at eight

Dug Blue Note jazz ‘till late

 

The music of New York City

Groovin’ in New York City

New York City

Swing low!

 

‘We crossed the Brooklyn Bridge

Drove right through old Bay Ridge

Rode Coney’s famed Cyclone

Boardwalk, blue sky, brownstone

 

The neighborhood New York City

New York City

(And) Brooklyn is sitting pretty

Moonglow!

 

 

‘Poor people on the street

With not enough to eat

Walked past by rich elite

This town it’s bittersweet

 

You just gotta take some pity

New York City

The homeless of New York City

Skid row!

 

‘Emotions cold and hot

New York’s a melting pot

The rainbow that you see

Of diverse humanity

 

They’re livin’ in New York City

New York City

It’s workin’ in New York City

Bravo!

 

The people of New York City

New York City

They’re makin’ it New York City

Good show

Great show

Bravo!!
