lyrics

(Intro)
Ooh New York
Ooh New York

(Verse 1)
I dream of one day going to New York
Making it big, poppin’ my cork
Hanging with Nas and my homie Jay-Z
Maybe get a hook from his lady Queen B

Hanging in the hive, hear the city buzz
People say they're busy but they're always showing love
I may just be a tourist, but it feels like I'm at home
Feeling like a Caesar and my feet just wanna roam

Roamin’ to the diamond, catch a foul ball
Catch a Yankee double-u (W), pennant in the fall
Fallin’ in love, with my city by the shore
Can’t seem to get my fill, always want some more

More of the fuel, this city don’t sleep
More of the love, it’s the city’s heartbeat
Poundin’ like a drum, in the symphony of life
Hear the music play, and we rise above the strife.

(Chorus)
In New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Out of New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York New York New York.

(Verse 2)
Find a way to make it here, hear the siren call
Listen to the voice inside, draws me to it all.
Draws me to the lights, like a moth to a flame,
Float by Lady Liberty, ask her “what’s your game?”

She speaks to me of hopes and dreams, speaks of days to come
Speaks about the path she took to climb out of the slum.
Rags to riches still the goal, we chase with all our might?
‘Til we see her holding high a different kind of light.

This torch she holds in her hand, ain’t about the bling
Ain’t about the one percent, not the diamond ring
She talks to me, words so true, penetrate my core
She speaks of about the path ahead to open Freedom’s door.

Alicia’s got the keys, hear her Siren call
Open up the gates, inspiration for us all;
Alicia’s got the keys, hear her Siren call
Open up the gates, opportunity for all.

(Chorus)
In New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Out of New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York New York New York.

(Bridge)
One hand in the air for the big city
Street lights, big dreams, all lookin' pretty
No place in the world that could compare
Put your lighters in the air everybody say yeah, yeah,
Yea, yea

(Chorus)
In New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Out of New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York New York New York.

Open up the gates, opportunity for all.
