Ow, I meant ah
No, I din't mean that at all

Here in the streets of American nights
Rise to the bottom of the meaning of life
Studied all the rules didn't want no part
But I let you in just to break this heart
Even though it was only one night
It was fucking strange

Nina's in the bedroom
She said, "Time to go now"
But leavin' it ain't easy
I got to let go, I got to let go
And the hours they ran slow
I said, "Every night she just can't stop sayin' "

"New York City cops
New York City cops
New York City cops
But they ain't too smart"

"New York City cops
New York City cops
New York City cops
But they ain't too smart"

Well, kill me now 'cause I let you down
I swear one day we gonna leave this town
Stop! Yes I'm leavin', 'cause it just won't work
And, they act like Romans, but they dress like Turks
Sometime, in your prime
See me, I like the summertime

Nina's in the bedroom
She said, "Time to go now"
But leavin' it ain't easy
I got to let go, I got to let go, oh

Trapped in an apartment
She would not let them get her
She wrote it in a letter
I got to come clean the authorities they've seen
Darling, I'm somewhere in between
I said, "Every night she just can't stop sayin' "

"New York City cops
New York City cops
New York City cops
But they ain't too smart"

"New York City cops
New York City cops
New York City cops
But they ain't too smart"
