Lyrics

Listen all you New Yorkers There's a rumour going round That some of you good people Want to leave this town Well, you better consult with me Before you go (yeah) Cause I been to all those places And I know (Chicago) well, Chicago's all right It's got Marshall Field and Soldier's Field and it's On a nice lake But it hasn't got The hansoms in the park It hasn't got a skyline after dark (That's why New York's his home) Let me never leave it New York's my home, sweet home (San Francisco) San Francisco is a lovely place It's got lots of hills And lots of thrills and it's Near an ocean of some size But it hasn't got The Bowery or The Bronx It hasn't got the Harlem honkytonks

(That's why New York's his home) Yeah, it's my favorite city New York's my home, sweet home (St.Louis) Lots of people like St.Louis It's got lots of shoes And the St.Louis blues and one Of our larger rivers runs by But let's face it It hasn't got the opera in The Met It hasn't got a famous string quartet (That's why New York's his home) No, not a place to visit New York's my home, sweet home (Hollywood) Hollywood Hollywood's got movie stars and Movie czars and cocktail bars and Shiny cars and a wonderful climate (Cough, cough) they say But it hasn't got The handy subway trains You seldom find a taxi When it's pouring down rain (That's why New York's his home) Yeah, take your California New York's my home, sweet home So, save your time and trouble Save your railroad fare I said save your time and trouble Save your railroad fare Cause when you leave New York Man, you don't go anywhere It's a city where a man Can fulfill his dreams The only town that's left That's got three baseball teams (That's why New York's his home) Let me never leave it New York's my home, sweet home
