Native New Yorker

New York girl, ooh, ooh, ooh
Runnin’ pretty, New York City girl
Twenty-five, thirty-five
Hello baby, New York City girl
You grew up riding the subways running with people
Up in Harlem, down on Broadway
You’re no tramp but you’re no lady, talkin’ that street talk
You’re the heart and soul of New York City
And love, love is just a passing word
It’s the thought you had in a taxi cab
That got left on the curb
When he dropped you off at East 83rd
Oh, oh, oh
(Oh, oh, oh)
You’re a native New Yorker
You should know the score by now
(You should know by now)
You’re a native New Yorker…
