ALICIA KEYS AND THE BIG CITY



Oooh oooh.. New York
Oooh oooh.. New York
Grew up in a town that is famous as the place of movie scenes
Noise is always loud. There are sirens all around and the streets are mean
If I can make it here, I can make it any where, that’s what the say
Seeing my face in lights or my name in marquees found down on Broadway
Even if it ain’t all it seems, I got a pocketful of dreams Baby,

I’m from New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
the lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New Yoooooooork

One the avenue, there ain’t never a curfew, ladies work so hard
Such a melting pot, on the corner selling rock, preachers pray to god
Hail a gipsy cab, takes me down from Harlem yo the Brooklyn Bridge
Some will sleep tonight with a hunger for more than an empty fridge
I’m gonna make it by any means, I got a pocketful of dreams Baby,

I’m from New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can`t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
the lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New Yoooooooork

One hand in the air for the big city, street Lights, big dreams all Looking pretty
No place in the World that can compare
Put your Lighters in the air, everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

In new York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
the lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New Yoooooooork
