Well I shuffled through the city on the Fourth of July had a firecracker waiting to blow 
Breaking like a robber who was making his way to the cities of Mexico 
Lived in an apartment out on Avenue A, had a tar-hut on the corner of 10th  
Had myself a lover who was finer than gold, but I been broken up and been busted up since
Love don't play any games with me, Any more like she did before
World won't wait so I, better shake that thing right out there through the door
Hell, I still love you New York

(Instrumental)

Found myself a picture that would fit in the folds of my wallet and it stayed pretty good 
Still amazed I didn't lose it on the roof of that place when I was drunk and I was thinkin' of you
Every day the children they were singing their tunes, out on the streets and you could hear from inside 
Used to take the subway up to Houston and Third, I would wait for you and I'd try to hide 
Love don't play any games with you, Any more if you don't want 'em to
World won't and I, watched you shake, but honey I don't blame you
Hell, I still love you New York
Hell, I still love you New York, New York

(Instrumental)

I remember Christmas in the blistering cold In a church on the Upper West Side
Babe, I stood there singing I was holding your arm You were holding my trust like a child
Found a lot of trouble out on Avenue B But I tried to keep the overhead low  
Farewell to the city and the love of my life At least we left before we had  to go
Love won't play any games with you Any more if you don't want 'em to
Sweep and shake this old thing out the door, I'll always be thinking of you
I'll always love you though New York

I'll always love you though New York
I'll always love you though New York
I'll always love you though New York, New York, New York
