New York Dream

Words and Music by
Tom Johnston

You jump in your car pull your long hair back
Got your wood grain appointments and your leather is black
With yo dark sunglasses and your flip phone on send
Ridin' along in your Mercedes Benz

Said, but somethin' that you left behind
A pesky little detail in the back of your mind
That would beyour midnight lover
Way across townsleepin' under cover

Dressed for work drinking latte on the balcony
Then you're meetin' with your lawyers down on Gramercy
Spendin' all your daddy's money on silky lingerie
Savin' all your loving for the man you hide away

But there's somethin' that you left behind
A pesky little detail in the back of your mind
That would bethe new young lover
Way across townsleepin' under cover
Make up your mind...before it's too late
Your high heeled thinkin' will take it all away

Satin seduction and powder on your face
Expensive way of livin' that your mind will erase
Playing in the clubs with the in crowd you seek
While the sun starts risin' in you're dead on your feet
Another dance another drink of small flirtation
Dropping the names of your rich relations
But nobody cares they just want to get high
While the young men's attention has just passed you by, bye baby

To your new young lover
Way across townsleepin' under cover
Make up your mind...before it's too late
Your high heeled thinkin' will take it all away

That would bethe new young lover
Way 'cross townsleepin' under cover
Make up your mind...before it's too late
Your high heeled thinkin' will take it all away

So what'll it be the new young lover
Way across town sleepin' under cover
Another day of shoppin' at Saks Fifth Avenue
Better look in the mirror at what's become of you
