Barbra Streisand - New York State of Mind Lyrics

Well, some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami beach or to Hollywood

But I'm takin' a greyhound
On the Hudson river line
I'm in a New York state of mind

I've seen all those movie stars
And their fancy cars and their limousines
I've been high in the rockies, under the evergreens oh oh

But I know what I'm needin'
And I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a new york state of mind oh oh

It was so easy livin' day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues (oh with the rhythm and blues)
But now I need a little give and take (give and take)
New York times (and the daily news), the daily news oh oh

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 up on riverside) or up on riverside

I don't have any reasons
'Cause I left them all behind
We're in a New York state of mind
Get a New York state of mind

It was so easy livin' day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues (with the rhythm and blues)
But now I need a little give and take
The New York times (the daily news) (helps you lose your blues)

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 up on riverside (or up on riverside)

We don't have any reasons
We've left them all behind
I'm in a New York,
I'm in a New York state of
We're in a New York state of mind
