Juju – New York State Of Mind lyrics
Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday
from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach
Or to Hollywood
But I'm taking a Greyhound
On the Hudson River Line
I'm in a New York state of mind

I've seen all the movie stars
In their fancy cars
and their limousines
Been high in the Rockies
under the evergreens
But I know what I'm needing
And I don't want to
waste more time
I'm in a New York state of mind

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch
with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little
give and take
The New York Times,
The Daily News
It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me
'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown
or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch
with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little
give and take
The New York Times,
The Daily News
It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me
'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown
or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
'Cause I'm in a New York
state of mind
I'm just taking a Greyhound
on the Hudson River Line
'Cause I'm in a New York
state of mind
