On the banks of the Hudson
My love and I lay down
Just above 42nd Street
While the rain was pouring down

When I covered her with kisses
The sparks lit up her eyes
We made love like mad angels
While the Jersey trucks rolled by

She said, "Don't you ever leave me
Oh, for god sake don't let me down"
So I made her all kinds of promises
About how I'd always be around

But the speed was rippin' through my head
I'd only one thing on my mind
So goodbye my love on 42nd street
If I don't get out of here, I'm gonna die

On the banks of the Hudson
My love and I lay down
Just one more midnight left to kill
Then I'm outta New York town

I could feel the ice man closin' in
I could almost smell his gun
But that 20 grand I beat him out of
Would help me start again back home

And she said, "Don't you ever leave me
Oh, for god sake don't let me down
Then I thought about what they'd do to her
When they found out I'd left town

But the fire was racin' through my brain
I'd only one thing on my mind
So goodbye my love on 42nd Street
If I don't get out of here, I'm gonna die

Don't say I should have stayed with her
You don't know the full story about the girl
I only used her just as much as she used me
But sometimes you just gotta get out of New York City

On the banks of the Hudson
My love and I lay down
Just above 42nd street
While the rain was pouring down

When I covered her with kisses
The sparks lit up her eyes
We made love like mad angels
While the Jersey trucks rolled by

And she said, "Don't you ever leave me
Oh, for god sake don't let me down"
But how could I ever take
A black girl back to Wexford town

Just then the streets of fire turned to blood
A yellow Cadillac cruised by
And as I raced up 42nd Street
The ice man shouted, "Hey Paddy, it's time to die"

It's time to
It's time to
It's time to
