Oleta Adams – 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 of those movie stars
And their fancy cars and limousines
I've been high in the Rockies
Or under the evergreens.
But I know what I'm needing
And I'm not going to waste more time
I'm in a NewYork state of mind.
It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
Now I need a little give and take
The New York Times and the Daily News, ohh
Comes down to reality and it's fine with me
Cause I've let it slide
I don't care if it's China Town
Or up on Riverside
I don't have any reasons
Cause I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York State of mind
I don't have any reasons
Cause I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind.
I'm in a New
I'm in a New- New York
I'm in a New
I'm in a New ooh ooh
New York state of mind
