New York City

I live in the city that never sleeps Time square lights shine While the sun creeps. Homeless men rush to the big tin can Of left over meals Teens vamp through the night, No sleeping pills. My fellow citizens Shop so late Club stays open in Brooklyn Way past eight. Catch a ferry to Staten Island Or a nice boat ride in Manhattan A Broadway musical Staring Jasmine and Aladdin. A Yankees game in the Bronx On a nice sunny day Mr. Softie drives by While all the kids play. A booster on the street Selling expensive bags for cheap And Knock off shoes While he watch out for police. Knicks game at Madison square garden Carmelo Anthony hits 30 points A Rikers island bus Releasing inmates from the joint. New York City is my city, The city everyone wants to meet. It stays awake as the sun creeps My city never sleeps.
