THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS » Factory Showroom » New York City

You called me last night on the telephone And I was glad to hear from you 'cause I was all alone You said, "It's snowing, it's snowing! God, I hate this weather." Now I walk through blizzards just to get us back together We met in the springtime at a rock-and-roll show It was on the Bowery when it was time to go We kissed on the subway in the middle of the night I held your hand, you held mine, it was the best night of my life. 'Cause everyone's your friend in New York City And everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty The streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see But the best thing about New York City is you and me Statue of Liberty, Staten Island Ferry, Co-op City, Katz's and Tiffany's* Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, The Empire State where Dylan lived** Coney Island and Times Square, Rockefeller Center Wish I was there You wrote me a letter just the other day Said, "Springtime is coming soon so why don't you come to stay." I packed my stuff, got on the bus, I can't believe it's true I'm three days from New York City and I'm three days from you 'Cause everyone's my friend in New York City And everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty The streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see But the best thing about New York City is you and me 'Cause everyone's my friend in New York City And everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty The streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see But the best thing about New York City is you and me.
