Down in bunkers / caught in crossfires
On the streets of this crumbling empire
Sad sights bad plights / blinding headlights
In the trenches with the subway gate fires

New York City a road black nightmare
New York City a street crime bad scare
Broken down barrier in an ethnic group smear
When I'm in I gotta get out of there

In the nighttime / on the front line
See your neighbor end up in the headlines
Homeless haven-a-hamburger craving
Starving artists strung out on the pavement

New York City it's Hell in an oven
New York City with no help from above
Broken down barrier in an ethnic group smear
When I'm in - get me out of here

NY NY - a Hell of a town
I wouldn't mind if it burned to the ground
Take me down the great white way
Go down on me - on Broadway
