She came from new york
Seems like a bright spark
Knew all the answers to the game
Moved to a new town
Soon pushed her way around
But youre a lady just the same

She went the wrong way
Tryin to catch that boy
He only used her
Then broke her like a toy
Like a new york broken toy

Moved with the wrong pack
Hard headed, well stacked
Drop her guard if you drop her name
Made all the wrong moves
Knew all the lines to use
Too many got burned in her flame

She went the wrong way
Tryin to catch that boy
He only used her
Then he broke her like a toy
Like a new york broken toy

Since the news got around
Someone I brought up town
Needed a friend but no one came
She tried to change her views
But still she wasnt bad news
Dont ever lose at your own game

She went the wrong way
Tryin to catch that boy
He only used her
Then he broke her like a toy
Like a new york broken toy.
