Bon Jovi Goodnight New York Lyrics

Morning comes crashing like a rock through a window

Jackhammer banging on the hot concrete

Take your stand (hey!)

Move it, man!

It’s a backtalk, sidewalk symphony

Uber cars, yellow cabs, thick as smoke

Painted girls and meter maids will leave you broke

Sax man blowing shootin’ through my veins

There’s a rhythm to the rocket that’s intoxicating

Goodnight New York goodnight

Don’t ever close your eyes

If these streets could talk, New York, New York

So fine they named you twice

Your face, your brains

No other place

From east to west, these streets are blessed

Goodnight New York

Sleep tight New York

Goodnight

Starbucks, FedEx trucks on every street and avenue

Broadway lights, shining bright, make everybody beautiful

Walking on the high line, reaching for the sky line

If Alexander Hamilton could see it all

Garbage trucks backing up

Beep, beep, beep

Dogs barking on the balcony

The kids can’t sleep

Scaffolds, pot holes, bagman’s on a bicycle

Fast trains, bus, planes

Welcome to the carnival

Goodnight New York goodnight

Don’t ever close your eyes

If these streets could talk, New York, New York

So fine they named you twice

Your face, your brains

No other place

From east to west, these streets are blessed

Goodnight New York

Sleep tight New York

Goodnight

The bravest and the finest

My hand’s on my heart for you

To the ones who paid the price

And to those who saw us through

It’s late, I’m gettin’ weary

So, for now, I’ll say

Goodnight New York goodnight

Don’t ever close your eyes

If these streets could talk, New York, New York

So fine they named you twice

Goodnight New York goodnight

Don’t ever close your eyes

If these streets could talk, New York, New York

So fine they named you twice

Your face, your brains

No other place

From east to west, these streets are blessed

Goodnight New York

Sleep tight New York

Goodnight

Ah, goodnight, New York

Sleep tight, New York

Goodnight

So goodnight, New York

Sleep tight, New York

Goodnight
