NYC

What is it about you 
You're big 
You're loud 
You're tough NYC 
I go years without you 
Then I 
Can't get 
Enough 
Enough of the cab drivers answering back 
In the language far from pure 
Enough of frankfurters answering back 
Brother, you know you're in NYC 
Too busy 
Too crazy 
Too hot 
Too cold 
Too late 
I'm sold 
Again 
On NYC 


NYC 


The shadows at sundown 
The roofs 
That scrape 
The sky 


NYC 


The rich and the rundown 
The parade 
Goes by 


What other town has the Empire State 
And a mayor five foot two 
No other town in 
The whole forty eight 
Can half compare 
To you 


Oh NYC 


You make 'em all postcards 


You crowd 
You cramp 
You're still 
The champ 
Amen For NYC (NYC) 
The shimmer of Times Square 

The pulse 

The beat 

The drive! (NYC) 

The city's bright 
As a penny arcade 
It blinks, it tilts, it rings 

To think that I've lived here all of my life 
And never seen these things 


Oh, NYC 
The whole world keeps coming 


By bus 
By train 

You can't 
Explain 
Their yen 
For 

NYC 
Just got here this morning 
Three bucks 
Two bags 
One me 
NYC 

NYC 
You're standing room only 
You crowd 
You cramp 
You're still 
The champ 
Amen For NY 

NYC 

 Give in 
Don't fight 
Good girl 
Good night 
Sleep tight 
In NYC

  1. What a lovely post! I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to experience the magic of theater. And, wine in sippy cups?! Pure genius.
