​New York Is a Woman

This song is by Suzanne Vega and appears on the album Beauty & Crime (2007).

Original video
New York City spread herself before you
With her bangles and her spangles and her stars
You were impressed with the city so undressed
Had to go out cruising all the bars

Your business trip extended through the weekend
Suburban boy here for your first time
From the 27th floor above the Midtown roar
You were startled by her beauty and her crime

And she's every girl you've seen in every movie
Every dame you've ever known on late night TV
In her steam and steel is the passion you feel
Endlessly

New York is a woman, she'll make you cry
And to her you're just another guy

Look down and see her ruined places
Smoke and ash still rising to the sky
She's happy that you're here, but when you disappear
She won't know that you're gone to say goodbye

New York is a woman, she'll make you cry
And to her you're just another guy

And she's every girl you've seen in every movie
Every dame you've ever known on late night TV
In her steam and steel is the passion you feel
Desperately

New York is a woman, she'll make you cry
And to her you're just another guy
