Start spreadin' the news, I'm leavin' today

I want to be a part of it, New York, New York

These vagabond shoes are longing to stray

Right through the very heart of it, New York, New York

 

I wanna wake up in a city that doesn't sleep

And find I'm king of the hill, top of the heap

 

These little town blues 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

 

<instrumental>

 

New York, New York

 

I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps

And find I'm A-number-one, top of the list,

King of the hill, A-number-one

 

These little town blues are melting away

I'm gonna make a brand new start of it in old New York

A-a-a-nd if I can make it there, I'm gonna make it anywhere

It's up to you, New York, New York
