Hey, hey, I know it wasn't New York
Where I lost my mind
Hey, hey, I know I must've left it
It was back home all the time

And where were you while we lay
So drunk that we died?
Hey, hey, I know, but who could blame us
Under pressure

And I know I should've stayed in bed
And I know I should've stayed in bed
And I know I should've stayed in bed

Hey, hey, I know it's just a toothache
I won't even cry
Hey, hey, the candy store prescriptions
All lined up in the aisles

And where were you while we lay
Shipwrecked in denial?
Hey, hey, it's just a little pill to help you
Sleep right through the night

I should've stayed in bed
And I know I should've stayed in bed
I know I should've stayed in bed

Because tomorrow's gonna be another party
You stay too long until the lights get lonely
Tomorrow's gonna be another party
Wait too long 'til we all stay out of the sun
Sun, sun, sun

And I know I should've stayed in bed
And I know I should've stayed in bed
I know, I know it wasn't New York, New York
And I know, I know it wasn't New York, New York

New York, New York
New York, New York
