"My New York" lyrics - IRVING BERLIN

"My New York"

Let me place a crown
On my favorite town
Let me sing its praises to the sky
Not because I'm there
As it's humble Mayor
But because you feel the same as I

There's a spot in my heart
That's becoming a part of my New York

There's a warm little beat
For each corner and street in my New York

I gaze at Father Knickerbocker resting on the map
With seven million children sitting pretty in his lap

And there's something inside
That is bursting with pride for my New York
