    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
