    [Verse 3: Jay Z]
    Lights is blindin', girls need blinders
    So they can step out of bounds quick, the side lines is
    Lined with casualties who sip the life casually
    Then gradually become worse; don’t bite the apple, Eve!
    Caught up in the in-crowd, now you're in-style
    And in the winter gets cold en vogue with your skin out
    The city of sin is a pity on a whim
    Good girls gone bad, the city's filled with 'em
    Mami took a bus trip and now she got her bust out
    Everybody ride her, just like a bus route
    "Hail Mary" to the city, you're a virgin
    And Jesus can’t save you, life starts when the church ends
    Came here for school, graduated to the high life
    Ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight
    MDMA got you feeling like a champion
    The city never sleeps, better slip you a Ambien

    [Hook: Alicia Keys]
    New York, concrete jungle
    Where dreams are made of
    There's nothing you can’t do
    Now you’re in New York
    These streets will make you feel brand new
    Big lights will inspire you
    Let's hear it for New York

    [Bridge: Alicia Keys]
    One hand in the air for the big city
    Street lights, big dreams, all looking pretty
    No place in the world that can compare
    Put your lighters in the air
    Everybody say: "Yeah!"

    [Hook: Alicia Keys]
    New York, concrete jungle
    Where dreams are made of
    There's nothing you can’t do
    Now you’re in New York
    These streets will make you feel brand new
    Big lights will inspire you
    Let's hear it for New York
    New York, New York

    [Interlude: Jay Z]
    You're welcome, OG
    I made you hot, nigga

    [Verse 2: Jay Z]
    Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game
    Shit, I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can
    You should know I bleed Blue, but I ain't a Crip, though
    But I got a gang of niggas walking with my clique though
    Welcome to the melting pot, corners where we sellin' rocks
    Afrika Bambaataa shit, home of the hip-hop
    Yellow cab, gypsy cab, dollar cab, holla back
    For foreigners it ain't fair, they act like they forgot how to add
    Eight million stories out there in the naked city
    It's a pity half of y’all won’t make it
    Me, I gotta plug Special Ed "I Got It Made"
    If Jeezy's paying LeBron, I’m paying Dwyane Wade
    Three dice Cee-lo, three card Monte
    Labor Day Parade, rest in peace Bob Marley
    Statue of Liberty, long live the World Trade
    Long live the king, yo; I’m from the Empire State, that's…

    [Hook: Alicia Keys]
    New York, concrete jungle
    Where dreams are made of
    There's nothing you can’t do
    Now you’re in New York
    These streets will make you feel brand new
    Big lights will inspire you
    Let's hear it for New York
    New York, New York

    [Interlude: Jay Z]
    That boy good
    Welcome to the bright light, baby!

    [Verse 1: Jay Z]
    Yeah, I'm out that Brooklyn, now I'm down in Tribeca
    Right next to DeNiro, but I’ll be hood forever
    I’m the new Sinatra, and since I made it here
    I can make it anywhere, yeah, they love me everywhere
    I used to cop in Harlem; hola, my Dominicanos
    Right there up on Broadway
    Brought me back to that McDonalds
    Took it to my stash spot, 560 State Street
    Catch me in the kitchen, like a Simmons whippin' pastry
    Cruising down 8th street, off-white Lexus
    Driving so slow, but BK is from Texas
    Me, I’m out that Bed-Stuy, home of that boy Biggie
    Now I live on Billboard and I brought my boys with me
    Say what up to Ty Ty, still sipping Mai Tais
    Sitting courtside, Knicks and Nets give me high fives
    Nigga, I be Spiked out, I can trip a referee
    Tell by my attitude that I'm most definitely from…

    [Hook: Alicia Keys]
    New York, concrete jungle
    Where dreams are made of
    There's nothing you can’t do
    Now you’re in New York
    These streets will make you feel brand new
    Big lights will inspire you
    Let's hear it for New York
    New York, New York

    [Interlude: Jay Z]
    You're welcome, OG
    I made you hot, nigga
