"New York"

(A young sailor is visiting New York City for the first time, and is being told about the city by a native.)

[NEW YORKER]
I love
New York
I've lived here thirty-six years
And, buddy, I'm sold

It's great
In New York
There's so much to see and to do
At least, so I'm told
That's what I hear
Let me make it clear

There's the Bowery
And the Battery
And there's Broadway
And Times Square
But I'm seldom ever there
Myself

There's the Statue of Liberty
It's a lot of fun to climb
But I've never had the time
Myself

A week at the office
I think of the city
And how I could do it up brown
By Friday, it's gotten me down
So I get out of town

But the Cloisters
And there's Chinatown
There's so much to see and do
How I wish that I were you
And had time to see the sites of New York
Too!
Ah, New, New York

La da da da...

There's the Bowery
And the Battery
And there's Broadway
And Times Square
But I'm seldom ever there
Myself

There's the Statue of Liberty
It's a lot of fun to climb
But I've never had the time
Myself

A week at the office
I think of the city
And how I could do it up brown
By Friday, it's gotten me down
So I get out of town

But the Cloisters
And there's Chinatown
There's so much to see and do
How I wish that I were you
And had time to see the sites of New York
Too!
Ah, New

New York is wonderful
Da da da da da da...
It's great
In New York
Da da da da da da...
