Lyrics

Do you see that thing
I'm sure it's love
Would you do one thing
New York's in love
The city grew wings in the back of the night
The clouds are stuck like candy-floss
She sees the rich trash having all the fun
Makes her wonder where they get the energy from
There's nothing you can do to her
This  city's all clean and waiting
I don't mean to wait too long
But this joint can't get much higher

CHORUS
  New York's in love-
  With her big green eyes
  And her long blonde hair
  New York's in flames
  New York's in love
  With the way she talks
  And the way she walks
  New York's in love
  Goo Goo Goo Goo Goo Goo

My, oh my, it's a tom-tom beat
No-one knows they've had their day
We can dance and we can see the singles swing
Everybody's waiting for the Go-Go Boys.
You're turned to stone by the family
It's now the dead speak to the living
Nothing left here but a raging blaze
I don't mean to wait too long

CHORUS
  New York's in love-
  With her big green eyes
  And her long blonde hair
  New York's in flames
  New York's in love
  With the way she talks
  And the way she walks
  New York's in love
  Goo Goo Goo Goo Goo Goo
