U can dance if U want 2
All the critics love U in New York
U don't have 2 keep the beat
They'll still think it's neat in New York

U can wear what U want 2
It doesn't matter in New York
U could cut off all your hair
I don't think they'd care in New York

All the critics love U in New York

Why U can play what U want 2
All the critics love U in New York
They won't say that U're naive
If U play what U believe in New York

Purple love-amour is all U're in it 4
But don't show it
The reason that U're cool
Is cuz U're from the old school and they know it

All the critics love U in New York

U can dance if U want 2
All the critics love U in New York
U can dance if U want 2
All the critics love U in New York

All the critics love U, all the critics love U
All the critics love U in New York

It's time 4 new direction, it's time 4 jazz 2 die
4th day of November, we need a purple high

Don't give up
I'll still love U

All the critics love U in New York {x2}
All the critics love U, all the critics love U
All the critics love U in New York

Body don't wanna quit, gotta get another hit {x4}

[(On the 1)]
All the critics love U, all the critics love U
All the critics love U in New York

What're U lookin' at, punk?

Look out all U hippies, U ain't as sharp as me
It ain't about the trippin', but the sexuality
Turn it up!
U can dance if U want 2

All the critics love U in New York {x2}

Yes, we're certain of it
He's definitely masturbating

All the critics love U in New York
Take a bath, hippie!
All the critics love U in New York {x4}
In New York
New York {x4}
