New York City Blues (Live) - Neil Sedaka

Life and death in an alleyway

 

Just a heartbeat away from a man

 

Who's learned to turn his head away

 

From the pain that drains the land

 

Harlem's not too far from here

 

You can smell the garbage feel the fear

 

I hear they're gonna build

A sky scraper there

As if we didn't need the extra air

 

New York city blues

 

In order to win you gotta lose

 

Old before your time

 

The dirt and the grime

 

Get into everything

 

And the papers love to say

 

It's the meanest town in the USA

 

But I think it's OK

It's the town I've made my home

 

On another side of Park Avenue

 

Respectable folks don't know

 

Hungry eyes take in the view

 

Of the world that lays them low

 

Too many years on a welfare line

 

The old song and dance time after time

 

You can only get so pushed around

 

Until you wanna tear the damn thing down

 

New York city blues

In order to win you gotta lose

 

Old before your time

 

The dirt and the grime

 

Get into everything

 

And the papers love to say

 

It's the meanest town in the USA

 

But I think it's OK

It's the town I've made my home

 

New York city blues

 

In order to win you gotta lose

 

Old before your time

 

The dirt and the grime

 

Get into everything

 

And the papers love to say

 

It's the meanest town in the USA

 

But I think it's OK

It's the town I've made my home
