Amen for NYC

Just got back from college visit to NYC (breaks into song - see below). I am even more madly in love with Tisch than I was before, if that is possible (sorry, Stephen, you'll have to share). It looks like this really might be do-able. And I have a fleece sweatshirt that says Tisch on it. . . that I plan to live in for the next few months. All is right in the world.

NYC! What is it about you?
You're big, you're loud, you're tough.
NYC! I go years without you.
Then I can't get enough.
Enough of the cab drivers answering back
In the language far from pure
Enough of frankfurters answering back
Brother, you know you're in
NYC! Too busy, too crazy,
Too hot, too cold
Too late, I'm sold
Again on NYC
NYC The shadows at sundown
The roofs that scrape the sky
NYC The rich and the rundown
The big parade goes by
What other town has the Empire State
And a mayor five foot two?
No other town in the whole forty eight
Can half compare to you
NYC! You make 'em all postcards
You crowd, you cramp.
You're still the champ.
Amen for NYC
NYC! The shimmer of Times Square
The pulse, the beat, the drive!
The city's bright as a penny arcade
It blinks, it tilts, it rings
To think that I've lived here all of my life
And never seen these things
NYC! The whole world keeps coming
By bus, by train
You can't explain
Their yen for. . .
NYC Just got here this morning
Three bucks, two bags, One me
NYC I give you fair warning
Up there in lights I'll be
Go ask the Gershwins or Kaufman and Hart
The place they love the best
Though California pays big for their art
Their fan mail comes addressed to NYC
Tomorrow a penthouse
That's way up high
Tonight the "Y"
Why not?
It's NYC
NYC You're standing room only
You crowd you cramp
You're still the champ
Amen for NYC
