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. Oh God, I hate this weather!”

But, you know, I'd walk through blizzard just to get us back together.

We met in the springtime
At a rock and roll show.
It was in the Bowery
When it was time to go,
We kissed on the subway
In the middle of the night.
I held your hand and 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,
Alphabet City,
Breakfast at Tiffany's,
Central Park,
Brooklyn Bridge,
The Empire State where King Kong lives,
Coney Island and
Times Square,
Rockefeller Center:
Wish I was there!

You wrote me a letter just the other day.
You said, “Springtime is coming soon so why don't you come to stay?”
I packed my stuff;
I'm 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.

Now 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.
You and me.
