AL KOOPER lyrics - New York City (You're A Woman)

AL KOOPER
"New York City (You're A Woman)"
(Kooper)

New York City you're a woman
Cold-hearted bitch ought to be your name
Oh you ain't never loved nobody
Yet I'm drawn to you like a moth to flame
Oh I have suckled you in my sorrow
And I have sinned with you in my shame
But you ain't never even seen me
New York City, I'm tryin' to beat your game

Oh and I rise up, Lord, and I fall down
It's all in the merit of my ways
Don't you dare try & stop me now
I am settled right here in your haze
And I am stuck here now in the final phase

Now don't you send me to the country
'Cause I ain't ready to concede
I will tell you when I'm ready
And I will call to you from down on my knees
Oh I might be standing but
I'll be down on my knees

New York City you're a woman
Cold-hearted bitch ought to be your name
Oh you ain't never loved nobody
Still I'm drawn to you like a moth to flame
And I guess that it's silly
To think you'll ever change

New York City
You're everything my heart & soul inside
New York City
Oh I'm stuck here - stuck inside of
New York City
I been with ya up & I been with ya down
New York City
I can't get myself outa this town
New York City
I feel it inside me every day of my life
New York City
I can't break loose - It's all over me
New York City
You're a part of my life in every which way
New York City
Everything I ever meant - everything I say
New York City
I can't break loose
