NEW YORK CITY BLUES (Quincy Jones (m) Peggy Lee (l) ) Peggy Lee recorded 1961 Once I said goodbye to New York City, Sweet city, I said goodbye, But I've got to get back to you, If I have to walk or crawl or fly! I can't say goodbye to New York City, Sweet city, somethin's got to give. They say it's a great place to visit, But my heart tells me it's a better place to live! If I come by plane I can see those buildings high, And if I come by boat I can really heave a sigh, And if I come by train I can watch those streets go by. And if I land in the airport, come in sky way, Catch a cab that's goin' my way, Love the busy hum, yes this is my day, New York is my town, Yes New York, New York is my town! And I'll go uptown, downtown, And it's big, happy sad town, And I'll go uptown, downtown, And it's big, happy sad town, East side, west side, All around the town. I love the people, yes the people, And how they make that big town swing! In the Autumn, in the Winter, In the Summer, in the Spring, Yes the people are everything! And I'll go uptown, downtown, Oh I'll go uptown, downtown, East side, west side, New York is my City, New York! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - January 2016)
