Queens, Long Island, and Brooklyn too.
From the Rockefeller Center to 5th Avenue.
Still my favorite place in the Empire State is in bed with you.
A boat on the Hudson to Niagara Falls.
From the Statue of Liberty to Carnage Hall.
Still my favorite place in the Empire State is in bed with you.

Central Park, The Village,
And the Brooklyn Bridges,
The hottest shoes in the world the Fashion District.
Still my favorite place in the Empire State is in bed with you.

I've been around the world and now I understand. (There is nothing more)
Valuable than an honest friend. (There is nothing more)
Powerful than the warm hands of a man
I think you understand.
Oh I think you understand.

We can go to Radio City or to Madison Square Garden.
Listen to jazz in Lincoln Center,
Visit the Apollo up in Harlem.
But when it's all done and said and I lay down my head,
I wanna be next to you.
'Cause, my favorite place in the Empire State, is 6th Avenue.
'Cause, my favorite place in the Empire State, is 6th Avenue.
