  • The first to put a simple truth in words
    Binds the world in a feeling all familiar
    'Cause everybody owns the great ideas
    And it feels like there's a big one round the corner

    Antenna up and out into New York
    Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
    And oh, my giddy aunt, New York can talk
    It's the modern Rome where folk are nice to Yoko

    Every bone of rivet steel, each corner stone and angle
    Jenga jut and rusty water tower, pillar, post and sign
    Every painted line and battered ladder building in this town
    Sings a life of proud endeavor and the best that man can be

    Me, I see a city and I hear a million voices
    Planning, drilling, welding, carrying their fingers to the nub
    Reaching down into the ground, stretching up into the sky
    Why? Because they can, they did and do so you and I could live together

    Oh my God, New York can talk
    Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
    Everybody owns the great ideas
    And it feels like there's a big one round the corner

    Oh my God, New York can talk
    Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
    Everybody owns the great ideas
    And it feels like there's a big one round the corner

    Oh my God, New York can talk
    Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
    Everybody owns the great ideas
    And it feels like there's a big one round the corner

    The desire to part sure symphony
    The desire like a distant storm
    For love, be good for me
    And it feels like there's a big one round the corner

    Oh my God, New York, you talk
    Somewhere in all that talk is all the answers
    Everybody owns the greats ideas
    And it feels like there's a big one round the corner

    The way the day begins
    Decides the shade of everything
    But the way it ends depends on if you're home
    For every soul, a pillow at a window, please
    In a modern Rome where folk are nice to Yoko Writer/s: Craig Lee Potter, Guy Edward John Garvey, Mark Potter, Peter James Turner, Richard Barry Jupp
