Glee – NYC lyrics

What is it about you
You're big
You're loud
You're tough NYC

I go years without you
Then I can't get enough
Enough of the cab drivers answering back
In the language far from pure

Enough of frankfurters answering back
Brother, you know you're in NYC
Too busy, too crazy
Too hot, too cold, too late
I'm sold again on NYC

Come on you slowpokes
We gotta get to the Roxy before the prices change

NYC

The shadows at sundown
The roofs, that scrape, the sky

NYC

The rich and the rundown
The parade goes by

That other town has the Empire State
And a mayor, five foot two
No other town in the whole forty eight
Can half compare to you

Oh, NYC

You make 'em all postcards

You crowd, you cramp
You're still the champ
Amen For NYC, NYC
The shimmer of Times Square

The pulse, the beat
The drive, NYC

The city's bright
As a penny arcade
It blinks, it tilts, it rings

To think that I've lived here all of my life
And never seen these things

Oh, NYC
The whole world keeps coming

By bus, by train

You can't explain
Their yen for

Star to be NYC
Just got here this morning
Three bucks, two bags
One me NYC

I give you fair warning
Up there in lights I'll be
Go ask the Gershwins or Kaufman and Hart
The place they love the best
Though California pays big for their art

Their fan mail comes addressed to NYC
Tomorrow a penthouse
That's way up high
Tonight the "Y"
Why not? It's NYC

NYC

You're standing room only
You crowd, you cramp
You're still the champ
Amen For NY

Keep it quiet down there

NYC

Immediate seating, there is immediate seating

Popcorn, what do you say to some popcorn?
I haven't had popcorn since

Give in, don't fight
Good girl, good night
Sleep tight in NYC
