lyricStart spreading the news
I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

These vagabond shoes
They are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

I want to wake up in a city
That never sleeps
And find I'm king of the hill
Top of the heap

These small town blues
They are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York

If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you
New York, New York

New York, New York
I want to wake up in a city
That doesn't sleep
And find that I'm number one

Top of the list
Head of the heap
King of the hill
These little town blues

They've all melted away
I'm gonna make a brand new start of it
In old New York

And
If I can make it there
I'll make it practically anywhere
It's up to you
New York, New York
New York
