Franks, Michael - Summer In New York Lyrics

Come, loved one
Let's ride that silver train
Right down the Hudson
Have lunch in midtown
It's summer in New York

Meander through the Met
Just like we used to
The odds are King Tut still
Summers in New York

We'll both review Fifth Avenue
From uptown to St. Pat's
Indulge our vice:
Italian ice
Then walk through Central Park
It's summer in New York

And last, love, we'll order two
Espressos at a jazz club
Where someone we know
Is gigging in New York

There's more to do tomorrow too
Get lost inside the strand
Devote some time
To Guggenheim
See Shakespeare in the park
It's summer in New York
