New York Town

New York town, New York town
I just love to walk around
Hear the sights, see the sounds
In New York town

Walk around Times Square
Giant signs up in the air
Crowds of people everywhere
They stop and stand and stare

Walking uptown on Broadway
Crowded on a winter day
People lined up for a play
Sunday matinee

Lincoln Center, Central Park
Museum of Modern Art
Classic, retro, avant-garde
Here in New York town

Ride the B train, or the 2
Out to Flatbush Avenue
Some will even sing for you
In New York town

New York is the place to be
To absorb the energy
Flashing lights on the marquee
As far as you can see

New York town, New York town
I just love to walk around
Hear the sights, see the sounds
In New York town
