LyricsEdit

Oh! I meant - Ah!

No, I didn't mean that at all


Here in the streets of American nights

Rise to the bottom of the meaning of life

Studied all the rules, and I want no part

But I let you in just to break this heart

Even though it was only one night

It was fuckin' strange


Nina's in the bedroom

She says, "Time to go now"

But leavin' it ain't easy


I've got to let go

Oh, I've got to let go


And the hours they went to slow

I said every night

She just can't stop sayin':

"New York City cops

New York City cops

New York City cops

They ain't too smart

New York City cops

New York City cops

New York City cops

They ain't too smart"


Just kill me now 'cause I'll let you down

I swear one day we're gonna leave this town

"Stop"


Yes, I'm leaving 'cause this just won't work

They act like Romans, but they dress like Turks

Soft time in your prime

See me, I like the summertime

But...hey


Nina's in the bedroom

She says, "Time to go now"

But leaving it ain't easy


Oh, I've got to let go

I've got to let go


Oh, trapped in an apartment

She would not let them get her

She wrote it in a letter:

"I've got to come clean

The authorities, they've seen

Darling, I'm somewhere in between"


I said every night

She just can't stop sayin':

"New York City cops

New York City cops

New York City cops

They ain't too smart

New York City cops

New York City cops

New York City cops

They ain't too smart"

TriviaEdit
