Eskimo Joe – New York lyrics
Hey hey, I know it wasn't New York
Where I lost my mind

Hey hey, I know I must have left it
It was back home all the time,
And where were you while we lay
So drunk that we died

Hey hey, I know, but who could blame us,
Under pressure

And I know,
I should have stayed in bed,
And I know,
I should have stayed in bed,
And I know,
I should have stayed in bed

Hey hey, I know its just a toothache,
I won't even cry

Hey hey, the candy store prescriptions
All lined up in the aisles
And where were you while we lay
Shipwrecked in denial

Hey hey, its just a pill to help you
Sleep right through the night

I should have stayed in bed
And I know
I should have stayed in bed
I know I should have stayed in bed

Because tomorrow's gonna be another party
You stay too long until the lights get lonely
Oh tomorrow's gonna be another party
Wait too long til we all stay out of the
Sun, sun, sun, sun

And I know,
I should have stayed in bed,
And I know,
I should have stayed in bed

I know, I know, it wasn't New York, New York
I know, I know, it wasn't New York, New York

New York, New York
New York, New York
