New York -- to that tall skyline I come
Flyin' in from London to your door
New York -- lookin' down on Central Park
Where they say you should not wander after dark

New York -- like a scene from all those movies
But you're real enough to me, for there's a heart
A heart that lives in New York

A heart in New York arose on the street
I write my song to that city heartbeat
A heart in New York -- the love in her eyes
An open door and a friend for the night

New York -- you got money on your mind
And my words won't make a dime's worth of difference
So here's to you, New York
