Kasia Kowalska – 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 Hollywood.
I'm taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River line
I'm in a New York state of mind.

I seen all the movie stars
N 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 the 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 Riverside,
I don't have any reasons, I've left them all behind
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.
