YOU HAD TO BE THERE Steve Lawrence You can say I'm lazy, slowly goin' crazy Longin' for a taste of New York air But what's the since of talking, wastin' my breath Cause I guess that you just had to be there When all the candy was a nickel, people weren't fickel No one had a dime, but did they care Talk about the good times, they were the best But I guess that you just had to be there A stick, a ball, a street was all we ever needed And we were happy, happier then So when I die I hope they say he overdosed on reminisin' NYC is you I'm missin' Give me a New Yorker, any old New Yorker Bet we got a million songs to share Laughin' on the outside, slightly depressed Cause you know I'll like to be there, guess you had to be there If I could only be there now. Music interlude A stick, a ball, a street was all we ever needed And we were happy, happier then So when I die I hope they say he overdosed on reminesin' NYC is you I'm missin' Give me a New Yorker, any old New Yorker I'll Bet we got a million songs to share Laughin' on the outside, slightly depressed Cause you know I'll like to be there, guess you had to be there If I could only be there now.
