Music By: Elton John
Words By; Bernie Taupin

i used to think that new york city
fell from grace with god
and innocence abroad
waved a war for the underdog
when the snow falls 
and central park looks like a chirstmas card
i just look beyond that bagman
and the maddess that makes this city hard

i heard a basketball
somewhere out beyond a chain link fence
inner city prisoners
argue for the right of self defense
but theres a fast break
and every work of art brakes something in my soul
just focus on the cross strokes
and the bouquets that the dancers hold

spanish harlem still sounds good to me
yeah mona lisas getting older
stading in the shadow of miss liberty
while i walk along the west side
down through little italy
searching for the city 
that took away the kid in me
