Been down in the dumps for a day or two
Thinkin' maybe it was time for me to make a move
Late night skyline, that's when it hit me
Well, I gotta have me some of that New York City

I was leavin' California in a Chevrolet van
Out across the desert into no-man's land
I just love the West, ya know it sure is pretty
But I gotta have me some of that New York City

I been away too long and I got the itch
To do a little time in that east coast niche
Down on Broadway and do a little ditty
Smack dab in the middle of New York City

I been away too long and I got the itch
To do a little time in that east coast niche
Down on Broadway and do a little ditty
Smack dab in the middle of New York City

I was leavin' California on a warm summer night
Ocean on my left and mountains on my right
To leave it all behind sure seems like a pity
But I gotta have me some of that New York City
