Ooh ah ooh ah ooh ooh Kitty
Tell us about the boy from New York City
Ooh ah ooh ah come on Kitty (oh yeah)
Tell us about the boy from New York City

He's kinda tall
He's really fine (yeah yeah)
Someday I hope to make him mine, all mine (yeah yeah)
And he's neat
And oh so sweet
And just the way he looked at me swept me off my feet (yeah yeah)
Ooh ee you ought to come and see
How he walks (yeah yeah)
And how he talks (yeah yeah)

Ooh ah ooh ah ooh ooh Kitty (oh yeah)
Tell us about the boy from New York City

He's really down
And he's no clown (yeah yeah)
He has the finest penthouse I've ever seen in town (yeah yeah)
And he's cute
In his mohair suit
And he keeps his pockets full of spending loot (yeah yeah)
Ooh ee you ought to come and see
His pretty bar (yeah yeah)
And his brand new car (yeah yeah)

Everytime he says he loves me chills run down my spine
Everytime he wants to kiss me, ooh, he makes me feel so fine, yeah

Ooh ah ooh ah come on Kitty (oh yeah)
Tell us about the boy from New York City

Oh he can dance
And make romance (yeah yeah)
That's when I fell in love with just one glance. (yeah yeah)
He was shy
And so was I
And now I know we'll never ever say goodbye (yeah yeah)
Ooh ee you ought to come and see
He's the most (yeah yeah)
From coast to coast (yeah yeah)

Ooh aaa ooh aaa ooh ooh kitty (oh yeah)
Tell us 'bout the boy from new york city
Ooh ah ooh ah come on kitty (oh yeah)
Tell us 'bout the boy from new york city.
