New York State Of Mind - Lyrics

Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighbourhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood
But I'm taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line
I'm in a New York state of mind

I've seen all the movie stars
In their fancy cars and their limousines
Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens
I know what I'm needing
And I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a New York state of mind

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
And now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, The Daily News

It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
I don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons 'cause I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind

I don't have any reasons
'Cause I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind
