I'll Take New York

Franks Wild Years, 4 minutes

I'll Take New York
  • I'll Take New York


Tom Waits

I'll tip the newsboy
I'll get a shine
I'll ride this dream
To the end of the line
I'm goin places
I'll take a ride
Up to the Riverside
I'll take NY
I'll let it happen
I'll pop the cork
Tear off the wrappin'
I'll make a splash on the Hudson
That's how I will arrive
Hey, do you have two tens for a five?
Roll out the carpet
Strike up the band
Break into the best
Champagne when I land
Beat the parade drum
Hit all the bars
I want the moon and stars
But I'll take NY
I'll make it happen
Blow out the candlels
Tear off the wrappin'
And I know someday
They'll have to name a street after me
Right next door to old Franklin D
