Lyrics

[Denosh Bennett]
Oooh oooh, New York
Oooh oooh, New York

Grew up in a town,
That is famous as a place of movie scenes
The noise is always loud
There are sirens all around
And the streets are mean

If I could make it there
I could make it anywhere
That's what they say
Seeing my face in lights
Or my name in marquees 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
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York

[Robbie]
Start spreading the news
I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

I wanna wake up in a city
That doesn't sleep
And find I'm king of the hill
Top of the heap

My little town blues
They are melting away
I am gonna make a brand new start of it
In old New York

If I can make it there
I'm gonna make it anywhere
It's up to you
New York, New York

New York, New York

I want to wake up in a city
That doesn't sleep
And find I'm king of the hill
Top of the list
A number one
King of the hill

These little town blues
They are melting away
It's gonna be a brand new start of it
New York

And baby baby baby,
And if I can make it there
I'm gonna make it anywhere
Come on come on
New York, New York, New York
