New York state of mind

Billy Joel

  Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighbourhood 
  Hop a flight to Miami Beach Or to Hollywood. 
  But I'm  takin' a Greyhound 
On the Hudson River line
 I'm in a New York state of mind    

I've seen all the movie stars
In their fancy cars and their limousines
Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens.
But I know what I'm needin'
And I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a New York state of mind   

      It was so easy livin'  day by day
      Out of touch  with the rhythm and blues
      And now I need a little  give and take
     The New York Times
     The Daily News   

Comes down to reality
And it's fine with me, 'cause I let it slide
don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind
