Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it - New York, New York
These vagabond shoes are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it - New York, New York.
I want to wake up in a city, that doesn't sleep
And find I'm king of the hill - top of the heap
These little town blues are melting away,
I'll make a brand new start of it - in old New York.
If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere,
It's up to you - New York, New York.
