Lyrics

Ooh
New York
Ooh
New York

Grew up in a town that is famous as a place of movie scenes
Noise is always loud
There are sirens all around and the streets are mean
"If I can make it here I can make it anywhere"
That's what they say
Seeing my face in lights
Or my name in marquees found down on Broadway

Even if it ain't all it seems I got a pocketful of dreams
Baby I'm from

New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York
New York
New York

On the avenue there ain't never a curfew
Ladies work so hard
Such a melting pot
On the corner selling rock
Preachers pray to God
Hail a gypsy cab
Takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge
Someone sleeps tonight with a hunger for more than in an empty fridge

I'mma make it by any means
I got a pocketful of dreams
Baby I'm from

New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York
New York
New York

One hand in the air for the big city
Street lights
Big dreams
All looking pretty
No place in the world that can compare
Put your lighters in the air
Everybody say, "Yeah
Yeah"

New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York
