Ooh, New York
Ooh, New York
Ooh, New York
Ooh, New York
Grew up in a town
Grew up in a town
That was famous as a place of movie scenes
That was famous as a place of movie scenes
Noise is always loud
Noise is always loud
There are sirens all around
There are sirens all around
And the streets are mean
And the streets are mean
If I could make it here
If I could make it here
I could make it anywhere
I could make it anywhere
That's what they say
That's what they say
Seeing my face in lights
Seeing my face in lights
Or my name in marquees
Or my name in marquees
Found down on Broadway
Found down on Broadway
Even if it ain't all it seems
Even if it ain't all it seems
I got a pocketful of dreams
I got a pocketful of dreams
Baby, I'm from New York
Baby, I'm from New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York, New York, New York
Usłysz to dla Nowego Jorku, Nowego Jorku, Nowego Jorku
On the avenue
On the avenue
There ain't never a curfew
There ain't never a curfew
Ladies work so hard
Ladies work so hard
Such a melting pot
Such a melting pot
On the corner selling rock
On the corner selling rock
Preachers pray to God
Preachers pray to God

Now you're in New YorkAlicia Keys

Hail a gypsy cab
Hail a gypsy cab
Takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge
Takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge
Someone sleeps tonight with a hunger
Someone sleeps tonight with a hunger
Far more than an empty fridge
Far more than an empty fridge
I'ma make it by any means
I'ma make it by any means
I got a pocketful of dreams
I got a pocketful of dreams
Baby, I'm from New York
Baby, I'm from New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York, New York, New York
Usłysz to dla Nowego Jorku, Nowego Jorku, Nowego Jorku
One hand in the air for the big city
One hand in the air for the big city
Street lights, big dreams, all looking pretty
Street lights, big dreams, all looking pretty
No place in the world that could compare
No place in the world that could compare
Put your lighters in the air
Put your lighters in the air
Everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Big lights will inspire you
Now you're in New York
Now you're in New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York
Hear it for New York
