NEW YORK'S MY HOME (Gordon Jenkins) as recorded by Patti Page with Gordon Jenkins & his Orchestra 1956 Listen all you New Yorkers, there's a rumour goin' 'round That some of you good people wanna leave this town! But you'd better consult with me before you go, (yeah?) 'Cause I've been to all those places and I know! (Chicago?) Well Chicogo's alright, It's got Marshall Field and Soldiers Field And it's on a nice lake, But it hasn't got the hansoms in the park, Hasn't got the skyline after dark, (that's why New York's my home, never let me 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 thrill And it's near an ocean of some size, But it hasn't got The Bowery or The Bronx, Hasn't got the Harlem honkytonks, (that's why New York's my home, it's my favourite 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 it hasn't got the opera in the Met, Hasn't got a famous string quartet, (that's why New York's my home, not a place to visit) New York's my home sweet home! (Hollywood?) Hollywood's got movie stars and movie czars, cocktail bars, shiny cars, And a wonderful climate, they say, But it hasn't got the handy subway trains, You seldom find a taxi when it rains, (that's why New York's my home, take you Cailifornia) New York's my home sweet home! So save your time and trouble, Save your railroad fare, Save your time and trouble, Save your railroad fare, 'Cause when you leave New York, You don't go anywhere! (New York, New York,) New York's my home, (New York, New York, New York, New York) A fabulous place to live! (New York, New York, New York, New York...) A wonderful town, wonderful town, wonderful town... (Transcribed by Peter Akers - January 2016)
