Ooh New York
Ooh New York
Grew up in a town
That is famous as the place of movie scenes
Noise is always loud
There are sirens all around
And the streets are mean
If I could make it here
I could make it anywhere
That’s what they say
See my face in lights
Or my name in marquis
Found down on Broadway
Even if it ain’t all it seems
I got a pocketful of dreams
Baby I’m from New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York New York New York
On the avenue
There ain’t never a curfew
Ladies work so hard
Such a melting pot
On the corner selling rock
Preachers pray to God
Hail a gypsy cab
Takes me down from Harlem
To the Brooklyn bridge
Someone sleeps tonight
With a hunger for more
Than an empty
Fridge
I’mma make it by any means
I got a pocket full of dreams
Baby I’m from New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York New York New York
One hand in the air for the big city
Street lights big dreams all looking pretty
No place in the world that can compare
Put your lighters in the air
Everybody say yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York
