Start spreading the news, I am leaving today.
I want to be a part of it, New York, New York.
These vagabond dudes, are longing to stray
Right to the very heart of it, New York, New York.

I want to wake up, In that city that doesn't sleep.
And find I'm king of the hill, top of the heap.

My little town blues, They are melting away.
I gotta 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.

New York, New York.
I want to wake up, in that city that never sleeps.
And find I'm Number 1, Top of the list, King of the hill, Aye Number 1...

These little town blues, they have melted away.
I'm about to make a brand new start of it,
New York, New York.

If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere.
It's up to you, New York, New York!
