Up in the morning at 8:05, my room's too cold to cracka job

There's no beginning, there is no end

The landlord has cut the heat again (Say what)

It's freezing cold in New York City

I have no heat and it's a pity

I pay my rent bill right on time but I'm so cold that it's a crime

They say that New York's red hot

I'm here to tell you that it's not

And since the landlord he don't care, I gottahave my Long John Underwear

You gotta have a strong heart to live in New York

You gotta have strong lungs to live in New York

You gotta have a strong skin to live in New York

You gotta have Long Johns to live in New York

It's gonna take a lot of heart to live in New York

It's gonna take a lot of soul to live in New York

You gotta have a lot of cash to live in New York

You gotta have a lot of dash to live in New York

Freezing heart andfrozen below, with freezing ears and frozen nose

On and on and on, on and on from midnight to the break of dawn

I shiver in the shower, stutter on the phone

Wonder why I end up an Eskimo

If the landlord he don't bend, I guess I have to move again

You gotta have a strong heart to live in New York

You gotta have strong lungs to live in New York

You gotta have a strong skin to live in New York

You gotta have Long Johns to live in New York

You gotta have a lot of heart to live in New York

You gotta have a lot of soul to live in New York

You gotta have a lot of cash to live in New York

You gotta have a lot of dash to live in New York

 

I like to move where I can grove

Once a move to twice improve

To the South where the sun is hot

To a place where the landlord's not

take my wife and the three fat babies because Icame for New York lady

Left, right, left and to the South

(Forward march) I'm stepping out

You gotta have a strong heart to live in New York

You gotta have strong lungs to live in New York

You gotta have a strong skin to live in New York

You gotta have Long Johns to live in New York

Left, right, left, right, left, right, left

Left, right, left, right, left, right, left

Left, right, left, right, left, right, left

Left, right, left, right, left, right, left

Why don't you move into the Louvre

It's cosy there and you could prove Monet was hot, Picasso was not

I should have moved butmilk's no joke

Fool blew his bankroll tootin' cold

Now he don't like my on the spot

His New York baby and they're rather freezing

That would be the bee's knees

To London please

I said, "Excuse me if I have to sneeze"

I fear the cold like a disease

 

Have you ever seen a Londoner have a heart

Have you ever seen a shark bark

Have you ever seen a snake with hips

Have you ever seen a chicken with lips

Have you ever known a harp to talk

My god (Describe it)

Have you ever heard applause for a pause

Have you ever seen aflash of flashes, flashes

A rub of rubben, rubben

A millionaire on my fear

I date the lady I say

But you could have seenan empty day job

A summer in the summer

A rock and roller reefer

A brother kill another

Loved by your lover

Stick by a sticker

Lit by a lighter

Have you ever got robbed by a robber

Dreams form a dreamer

Have you ever given a gift to a giver

Time to a timer

Books to a booker

And Shocks to a sinner

No

 

I am freezing high, I am freezing low

In fact I'm freezing from the cold

On and on and on, on and on from midnight to the break of dawn

I shiver in the shower, stutter on the phone and I wonder why I end up an

Eskimo

I like to move where I can prove, once removed and twice confused

Go South where the sun is hot

Go South where the landlord's not

New York

 

I don't mind I'm on the spot

This new year comes, I'd rather freeze

I'm the person who's rather freeze
