      About "New York Is A Woman"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "New York Is A Woman"

      New York City spread herself before you
      With her bangles and her spangles and her stars
      You were impressed with a city so undressed
      You had to go out cruising all the bars

      Your business trip extended through the weekend
      Suburban boy here for your first time
      From the twenty-seventh floor above the midtown roar
      You were dazzled by her beauty and her crime

      And she's every girl you've seen in every movie
      Every dame you've ever known on late night TV
      In her steam and steel is the passion you feel
      Endlessly

      New York is a woman, she'll make you cry
      And to her you're just another guy

      Look down and see her ruined places
      Smoke and ash still rising to the sky
      She's happy that you're here, but when you disappear
      She won't know that you're gone to say goodbye

      New York is a woman, she'll make you cry
      And to her you're just another guy

      And she's every girl you've seen in every movie
      Every dame you've ever known on late night TV
      In her steam and steel is the passion you feel
      Desperately

      New York is a woman, she'll make you cry
      And to her you're just another guy
