The Lyrics

I've been to New York a few times, and it's a great city. However, I'd rather live here in Rhode Island, because it's a better place to live. But still, New York City is an awesome city to visit, so if you haven't been there, you should go sometime.
See me passing through Manhattan
Down on 42nd street,
Think I'll go to Central Park.,
'Cause it'll be real neat.

Taxis to the left of me,
Taxis to the right,
If you want a real cool city,
This town's outta sight.

'Cause it's NYC,
It's dynamite!
NYC,
Yes, it's outta sight!
NYC,
Lots of stuff to do!
NYC,
You should go too!

There's Brooklyn, Queens, and also the Bronx,
And Staten Island.
There is also another one:
Manhattan.
So pack up your luggage,
Bring plenty cash.
Let's go to New York,
But please don't be rash.
This can be a tough town,
So don't you mess around!

'Cause it's NYC,
It's dynamite!
NYC,
Yes, it's outta sight!
NYC,
Lots of stuff to do!
NYC,
You should go too!

(guitar solo)

NYC,
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
NYC,
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
NYC,
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
NYC,
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)

'Cause it's NYC,
It's dynamite!
NYC,
Yes, it's outta sight!
NYC,
Lots of stuff to do!
NYC,
You should go too!

People here in Southern California have just about the same thing to say about NYC when they go there. It's overstimulating.

Spent the night in a bar there during the air traffic controller strike in 82 (I think...maybe 81) All I remember of NYC is the hangover. Like the city, world class.....

Thanks for the compliments, guys. I'd been gone for a couple of days, and I wasn't sure how this one would do (then again, I'm not sure how any parodies I submit will do until I see the ratings). Regarding Dee: I've never heard of the air traffic controller strike before. What happened?

Dylan, the air traffic controllers strike in 1982 (or '81) caused massive slowdowns, and extended waiting time, for travelers world-wide. I was returning to America, having just spent 45 days on an off-shore oil rig in Nigeria. Due to the strike, I had to fly Aeroflot, the Russian airline, from Lagos Nigeria to Vienna Austria, where I waited for 2 days to fly to London, where I had another 12 hour layover. I arrived eventually in NYC at midnight, and had another 12 hour layover scheduled, so I caught a cab to a bar near 42nd st somewhere and drank until it closed at 4 am. I returned to the airport and slept on the floor for several hours until eventually catching a Braniff flight to Houston, where I lived at the time
