An imitation from New York,
New York, New York big city of dreams,
Everything in New York ain’t always what it seems
New York’s alright if you like tuberculosis
You could cut off all your hair, I don’t think they’d care in New York.
I wouldn’t live in New York City if they gave me the whole dang town.
New York City
Go Go Go Go Go Go Go Go
New York’s a go-go and everything tastes nice
New York City, just like I pictured it
Skyscrapers and everything
New York, New York,
Forty-second Street, hustlers rustle and pimps pimp the beat
Back in the New York Groove, in the New York Groove
The police in New York City
They chased a boy right through the park
Darling here I am,
The only living boy in New York.
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York,
