    "New York State of Mind" Lyrics

    Mel Tormé feat. George Shearing

    Some folks like to get away
    Take a holiday from the neighborhood
    Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood
    But I'm takin' a Greyhound
    On the Hudson River line
    I'm in a New York state of mind
    Seen all those movie stars
    And their fancy cars and their limousines
    Been high in the Rockies, under the evergreens
    But I know what I'm needin'
    And I don't wanna waste more time
    I'm in a New York state of mind

    It was so easy livin' day by day
    Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
    But now I need a little give and take
    The New York Times and the Daily News
    Comes down to reality
    And it's fine with me cause I've let it slide
    I don't care if it's Chinatown or up on Riverside
    I don't have any reasons
    I've left them all behind
    I'm in a New York state of mind
    I don't have any reasons
    Cause left them all behind
    I'm in a New York, I'm in a New York state of mind
