Lenny Kravitz – New York City lyrics
[Verse:]
Broadway lights and taxi cabs
Everybody's movin' fast
Uptown, Downtown, what's ya thang?!
She can't take what she can't bring

[Pre-Chorus:]
She gave me a life, came up through the inner city
She raised me up and taught me to fight, yeah!
She opened my mind, I got to the knitty gritty
The greatest time that you'll eva find

[Chorus:]
She is my heart, I love New York City
She's lived and died so many times, yeah
Life is always tough on New York City, hold on!
But she is fine, she always survives, yeah

[Verse 2:]
She's a queen that stands her ground
Nobody can take her down
Good times, bad times, she can swang
And did anyone a thang

[Pre-Chorus:]
She is a rock as we pull but she is steady
And no one can take her freedom away, yeah
You see, I love her style whether she is clean or dirt-aey
She's the greatest town that you'll eva find, yeah!

[Chorus:]
She is my heart, I love New York City
She's lived and died so many times, yeah
Life is always tough on New York City, hold on!
But she is fine, she always survives, yeah

(Bridge x2)
She is my heart, I love New York City
She's lived and died so many times, yeah
Life is always tough on New York City, hold on!
But she is fine, she always survives, yeah
Let's have it for ny City!

[Chorus:]
She is my heart, I love New York City
She's lived and died so many times, yeah
Life is always tough on New York City, hold on!
But she is fine, she always survives, yeah
