New York´s My Home

Listen all you new yorkers
Theres a rumours going around
That some of you good people want to leave this town
But you better consult with me before you go, yeah
'cause I've been to all those places and I know

(Chicago)
Well chicagoss all right its got marshall field and soldiers field and its on a nice lake
But it hasn't got the handsoms in the park
It hasn't got the skyline after dark
(Thats why new yorks my home never let me leave it)
New yorks my home sweet home

(San Francisco)
San Francisco is a lovely place its got lots of hills and lots of thrills
And its near an ocean of some size
But it hasn't got the bowery or the bronx
It hasn't got the harlem honkytonks
(Thats why new yorks my home sweet home its my favorite city)
New yorks my home sweet home

(Saint Louis)
Lots of people like St. Louis
It's got lots of shoes and St. Louis blues and one of our larger rivers runs by
But it hasn't got the opera in the met
It hasnt got a famous string quartet
(That's why New York's my home nonot a place to visit)

(Hollywood)
Hollywood's got movie stars and movie czars
Cocktail bars, shiny cars and a wonderful climate they say
But it hasnt got the handy subway trains
You seldom find a taxi when it rains
(Thats why new yorks my homeyeahtake you California)
New yorks my home sweet home
So save your time and trouble
Save your railroad fare
Save your time and trouble
Save your railroad fare
'cause when you leave new york
You dont go anywhere
New York's my home
A fabulous place to live
A wonderful time wonderful timewonderful time
