Your Passion, Our Purpose

New York State of Mind

Some folks like to get away.
Take a holiday from the neighbourhood.
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.
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.
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 up on Riverside.
I don’t have any reasons I’ve left them all behind.
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.
Don’t care if it’s Chinatown or up on Riverside.
I don’t have any reasons I’ve 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 New York state of mind.

New York State of Mind (1976) by Billy Joel
