New York, New York!
It’s a hell of a town!

We’ve got one day here and not another minute
To see the famous sights!

We’ll find the romance and danger waiting in it
Beneath the Broadway lights;
But we’ve hair on our chests
So what we like the best are the nights
Sights! Lights! Nights!

New York, New York, a helluva town
The Bronx is up, but the Battery’s down
The people ride in a hole in the groun’
New York, New York, it’s a helluva town!

Hey, Gabey! Gabey, look! Gabey, it says here
“There are 20,000 streets in New York, not counting MacDougal Alley
the heart of Green-Witch Village, a charming thoroughfare filled with”

Here we go again!

The famous places to visit are so many
Or so the guidebooks say
I promised Daddy I wouldn’t miss on any
And we have just one day
Got to see the whole town
From Yonkers on down to the Bay

In just one day!
New York, New York, a visitor’s place
Where no one lives on account of the pace
But seven millions are screaming for space
New York, New York, it’s a visitor’s place!

Hey! Look who’s comin’ back! It’s Tom and Andy!

Hey, Tom, Andy! Hey, fellas, how are the New York dames?

Wonderful – I don’t remember a thing!

Awful! I remember everything!

Manhattan women are dressed in silk and satin
Or so the fellas say;
There’s just one thing that’s important in Manhattan
When you have just one day;
Gotta pick up a date

Maybe seven

Or eight
On your way

In just one day!

New York, New York, a helluva town
The Bronx is up, but the Battery’s down
The people ride in a hole in the groun’
New York, New York, it’s a helluva town!
