New York State Of Mind

In the style of

Billy Joel

Lyrics

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
mm mm

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 needing
and i don't want to
waste more time
i'm in a new york
state of mind
mm mm

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
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
mm mm 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
woh oh woh oh oh

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
mm mm

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
