New York State Of Mind

Billy Joel


Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach
Or to Hollywood

But I'm taking 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

I know what I'm needing
And I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a New York state of mind

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

It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me, 'cause I've let it slide
I don't care if it's Chinatown
Or on Riverside

I don't have any reasons
I left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind
(Hm, oh, yeah)

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

It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me, 'cause I've let it slide
I don't care if it's Chinatown
Or on Riverside

I don't have any reasons
I left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind

I'm just taking a Greyhound
On the Hudson River line
'Cause I'm in a
I'm in a New York state of mind
Yeah, yeah
