Yeah, I'm up at Brooklyn Now I'm down in Tribeca
Right next to DeNiro But I'll be hood forever
I'm the new Sinatra And since I made it here
I can make it anywhere Yeah they love me everywhere
I used to cop in Harlem All of my Dominicans
Right there up on Broadway Brought me back to that McDonald's
Took it to my stash spot 5-60 State street
Catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons whipping pastry
Cruising down 8th street Off white Lexus 
driving so slow but BK is from Texas
Me I'm up at Bed-Stuy Home of that boy Biggie
Now I live on Billboard and I brought my boys with me
Say what up to Ty Ty still sipping Mai-tai
Sitting court side Knicks and Nets give me high fives

N-gga I be spiked out, I can trip a referee,
Tell by my attitude that I most definitely from

These streets will make you feel brand new big lights will inspire you

Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York
Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game
Dude I made the Yankee hat more famous than a yankee can
You should know I bleed Blue but I ain't a crip tho
But I got a gang of niggas walking with my clique though
Welcome to the melting pot Corners where we selling rock
Afrika bambaataa Home of the hip hop
Yellow cap, gypsy cap, dollar cab, holla back
For foreigners it aint fitted they forgot how to act
8 million stories out there and their naked
Cities is a pity half of y'all won't make it
Me I gotta plug Special Ed and I got it made
If Jeezy's paying LeBron, I'm paying Dwayne Wade
3 dice cee-lo 3 card Monte Labor day parade rest in peace Bob Marley

Statue of Liberty, long live the World trade Long live the king yo
I'm from the empire state that's *
Lights is blinding Girls need blinders So they can step out of bounds quick
The side lines is blind with casualties Who sipping life casually
then gradually become worse Don't bite the apple Eve
Caught up in the in crowd Now your in-style
And in the winter gets cold en vogue with your skin out
The city of sin is a pity on a whim
Good girls gone bad, the cities filled with them
Mami took a bus trip and now she got her bust out
Everybody ride her, just like a bus route
Hail Mary to the city your a Virgin
And Jesus CAN save you! life starts when church starts
Came here for school, graduated to the high life
                                                  C/E Asus4
Ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight
MDMA got you feeling like a champion
The city never sleeps better slip you a Ambient *
One hand in the air for the big city Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty
No place in the World that can compare,
Dm                                                        Asus4
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeaaah *
