Billy Joel - New York state of mind
Tekst en muziek: Billy Joel
(1976)






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, mmm



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 wanna waste more time
I’m in a New York state of mind, mmm



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’ve left them all behind
I’m in a New York state of mind, mmm, o 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 ohohoh



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’ve left them all behind
I’m in a New York state of mind, mmm



I’m just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line
’Cause I’m in
I’m in a New York state of mind
Yeah, yeah
