The Lyrics

Some folks like Mignon, Filet
When they get away for some food that's good
Choose to eat high there on the hog, goin' Hollywood
Well, my tastes are more earthbound,
Kind a' basic when I dine..
I'll have a New York steak, that's fine

You see 'em in the cafe bars, order like their stars
But they don't know beans
Those show offs, the cockys, tryin' to steal the scenes
I lay low when dinin' - few drinks,
Some quiet talk to soothe my mind
A well done New York steak, that's fine

Life can be stressy - workin' day by day
I get home, my wife's singin' the blues
I understand how women need a break
So, out we'll go, she'll love the news...

But with this economy, gotta' cruise low key
And not crazy ride..
Maybe she'll settle for Chinese food
And soft shoe, I'll glide..
Just one night out each season
Low angled, not inclined
I'll have a New York steak, that's fine
Oh yeah..

Life can be stressy - workin' day by day
I get home, my wife's singin' the blues
I understand she's gonna need a break
So, out we'll go, she'll love the news...

But with the economy, have ta' cruise low key
And not crazy ride
Maybe she'd go for some Chinese food
Down easy, I'll glide..
Just one night out each season
Low budget, can't get blind
I'll have a New York steak, that's fine
Oh yeah..

Got my plan down - on the ground
Keep it low frills when I dine
I'll just have, I'll have - a New York steak, that's fine

Very good AFW. I'm a NY resident, and a married man, so several aspects of this spoke to me. Great feel throughout, good luck soft-shoe-in'

I love NY steaks... but once you've had Kobe beef nothing ever tastes close. Would love to taste some Heck (Nazi) cattle but they are protected. Even in Britain I don't think anyone had slaughtered them for beef even though the demand is high. For health and decent taste Ostrich meat is good, Bison is merely OK... and of course you can now legally buy horse meat in the US although I don't knwo why anyone would want to!

Thanks, Glen S, glad you could relate...and thanks, John, and Rob, I never ate some of the others, but remember Buffalo Burgers in S.D. by Mt. Rushmore quite a few years back. Although the meat is dark, I thought they were pretty good
