I was sleeping, gently napping, when I heard the phone
Who is on the other end talking, am I even home
Did you see what she did to him, did you hear what they said
Just a new york conversation, rattling in my head

Oh, my, and what shall we wear
Oh, my, and whop really cares

Just a new york conversation, gossip all of the time
Did you hear who did what to whom, happens all the time
Who has touched and who has dabbled here in the city of shows
Openings, closings, bad repartee, everybody knows

Oh, how sad, why do we call
Oh, I'm glad to hear from you all

I am calling, yes I'm calling just to speak to you
For I know this night will kill me, if I can't be with you
If I can't be with you

Songwriters
FARRELL, PERRY/NAVARRO, DAVID/AVERY, ERIC ADAM / PERKINS, STEPHEN
