You called me last night
On the telephone
And I was glad to hear from you
'Cos I was all alone
You said it's snowing, it's snowing
God I hate this weather
Now I'd walk through blizzards
Just to get us back together

We met in the springtime
At a rock'n'roll show
It was in the Bowery
When it was time to go
We kissed on the subway
In the middle of the night
I held your hand, you held mine
It was the best night of my life

'Cos everyone's your friend
In New York City
And everything looks beautiful
When you're young and pretty
The streets are paved with diamonds
And there's just so much to see
But the best thing about New York City is
You and me

Statue of Liberty, Staten Island ferry
(.. ??* ..), Breakfast at Tiffany's
Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge
The Empire State where King Kong lives
Coney Island and Times Square
Rockefeller Centre
Wish I was there...

You wrote me a letter
Just the other day
Said springtime is coming soon
So why don't you come to stay
I packed my stuff, I'm on the bus
I can't believe it's true
I'm three days from New York City
And I'm three days from you

And everyone's my friend
In New York City
And everything looks beautiful
When you're young and pretty
The streets are paved with diamonds
And there's just so much to see
But the best thing about New York City is
You and me...
You and me...
You and me...
You and me...
