new york, new york lyrics – bono

start spreading the news
i’m leaving today
i want to be a part of it

new york, new york

these vagabond shoes
are longing to stray
right through the very heart of it

new york, new york

i want to wake up in a city
that doesn’t sleep
and find i’m king of the hill
top of the heap

these little town blues
are melting away
i’m gonna make a brand new start of it
in old new york

if i can make it there,
i’ll make it anywhere

it’s up to you
new york, new york
new york
