Suzanne Vega
New York is a women

New York city spread herself before you
with her bangles and her spangles and her stars
you were impressed with the city so undressed
you had to go and out cruising all the bars

your buisiness trip extended through the weekend
suburban boy here for your first time
from the 27th floor above the midtown roar
you were dazzled by her beauty and her crime

she's every girl you've seen in every movie
every dame you've ever known on late-night tv
with het steam and steel is the passion you feel
endlessly
new york is a woman, she'll make you cry
and to her you're just another guy

look down and see her ruined places
smoke and ash still rising to the sky
she's happy that you're here but when you disapear
she won't know that you're gone to say goodbye

she's every girl you've seen in every movie
every dame you've ever known on late-night tv
with het steam and steel is the passion you feel
desparetly
new york is a woman, she'll make you cry
and to her you're just another guy
