I Love New York

New York, New York, it's a wonderful town!
I'll make a brand new start of it, in old New York.
Some come to work, some come to play, some to stay.
And another hundred people just got off of the bus.

Everyone should live and work in New York some time,
As did parents, children, and their spouses.
New York University awarded degrees to Patrick,
Barbara, David, Dorcas, and Timothy.

We go back to New York, to gambol in old age,
To see the shows, to hear the music, to watch the people.
Walk into Lincoln Center to buy a ticket for today;
Pick one of five Italian restaurants on 56th Street.

Go to the Met early, before the schoolkids arrive.
Spend hours inspecting just a few wings.
Hear the highest of Sunday services
At St. Thomas on Fifth Avenue.

Walk Central Park in the spring or the fall.
Watch the skaters at Rockefeller Center in December.
Ship out of Battery Park to visit the lady of liberty,
And the new citizen's gateway to America.

Everywhere in the city accessible by subway or bus.
A fleet of a thousand yellow cabs cruising the streets
To take us in style to our next entertainment.
New York lives; it regenerates the spirit!
