    Lyrics

    My mother came to America
    Sailed through the harbor of hopes and of dreams
    Back in the Thirties with the streets paved in gold
    And the sky laced with moonbeams
    Mothers and daughters, fathers and sons
    Here in the free world, we're the lucky ones

    All of my yearning, all of my hunger
    Maybe we're learning sometimes I wonder
    Good night, New York

    Before the Kennedy's, before the Beatles
    Before the Vietnam War
    Back to a time when anything was possible
    Having less meant knowing more
    Brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts
    Here in the free world, for that second chance

    All of my yearning, all of my hunger
    Maybe we're learning sometimes I wonder
    Good night, New York

    My mother came to America
    She sailed through the harbor of hopes and of dreams
    And here in her future, I hope I've not failed her
    'Cause nothings the way that it seems

    All of my yearning, all of my hunger
    Maybe we're learning sometimes I wonder
    Good night, New York
