  • New York poor New York
    New York poor New York

    Cars choking your child to death
    But you don't want to see
    Cause you only think about yourself
    How blind can you be

    New York poor New York
    Sniper on the rooftop New York
    New York poor New York
    Not fit for a dog in New York

    Everybody bites on the Big Apple
    Leave the hungry in tears
    But no one gives a damn no one really cares
    How they feel they're just paper people not real

    You need a gun to walk into New York

    Now you're broke and you're out on a ledge
    Who can help you this time
    Now you're down to your very last cent
    Still you're askin' me who was your friend
    I was your friend

    New York poor New York
    Who turned the lights out in New York

    New York poor New York
    Just another blackout in New York

    Girl dead on the 26th floor
    But no one knew her name
    Found her body behind the door
    Too young for the game

    New York poor New York
    Devils in the subway New York
    New York poor New York
    New York poor New York
    Talkin' talkin' talkin', watch out
    Harlem touching midtown New York
    New York poor New York

    Talkin' 'bout New York New York
    Money's getting tighter New York
    They're burning the bridges to New York
