Native New Yorker

Twenty-five, thirty-five

Up in Harlem, down on Broadway
You're the heart and soul of New York City
And love, love is just a passing word
When he dropped you off and he stated firm
Oh, oh, oh [Oh, oh, oh]
You should know the score by now [You should know by now]

Makin' friends and findin' lovers

When you still believed love could really be like a Broadway show

You're a native New Yorker
For a native New Yorker
[Runnin' pretty, New York City girl]
Native, native, native New Yorker
Where did all those yesterdays go
You are the star
You're a native New Yorker
You're a native New Yorker
You should know the score, you should know the score by now
[Native, native, native new Yorker]

You should know the score
You're a native New Yorker
What you waitin' for, no one opens the door
For a native, for a native New Yorker
