Cat Power – New York lyrics

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
To find the cream of the crop
At the top of the heap

These little town blues
Are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In New York

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