    Lyrics

    Ah New York New York big city of dreams
    And everything in New York ain't always what it seems
    You might get fooled if you come from out of town
    But I'm down by law and I know my way around, too much
    Ah too many people, too much -- a ha hah
    Too much, too many people, too much, rrrrrrrah!

    A castle in the sky, one mile high
    Built to shelter the rich and greedy
    Rows of eyes, disguised as windows
    Lookin DOWN on the poor and the needy
    Miles of people, marchin up the avenue
    Doin what they gotta do, just to get by
    I'm livin in the land of plenty and many
    But I'm damn sure poor and I don't know why

    Too much, ah too many people, too much
    Too much, too many people, too much!

    A man's on a ledge, says he's gonna jump
    People gather round, said, "He won't he's just a chump"
    Cause he lost his job, then he got robbed
    His mortgage is due and his marriage is through
    He says he ain't gonna pay no child support
    Because the bitch left him without a second thought
    He got nothin to eat, no shoes on his feet
    She even left his clothes, out in the street
    He keeps hearin noises when he's at home
    He always hears voices when he's all alone
    His wife took the kids, the car and the crib
    In this man's world, so much for women's lib

    New York New York big city of dreams
    But everything in New York ain't always what it seems
    You might get fooled if you come from out of town
    But I'm down by law, and I know my way around

    Down in the Village, you might think I'm silly
    but you can't tell the women from the men sometimes
    They're sugar and spice and everything nice
    But when you get em home ain't no tellin what you find
    Right next door is a little old man
    I seen him eatin dog food out of a can
    He says, "I got to eat, when I can't afford meat
    I barely can stand, on my own two feet"
    I got a bad habit and I just can't break it
    Somethin's on my mind and I just can't shake it
    I need some time, and I want some space
    I gotta get away from the human race

    Too much, ah too many people, too much... a-ha hah
    Too much, ah too many people, too much! Rrrrrrrah!

    Stand at a skyscraper reachin into heaven
    When over in the ghetto I'm livin in hell
    Just play ball or be an entertainer
    cause niggaz like me can't read too well
    Nobody loves me, nobody cares
    I dreamed about a life but I'm livin in a nightmare
    Paranoid schitzo, set back, snowbound
    Bad news psycho, heart attack, breakdown!
