  • I'm moving to New York

    Huh, turn me up baby
    I got it
    Huh, I said I got it

    I'm living in New York City
    I'm living in New York
    I'm living in New York City
    In the center of the world
    I'm living in New York City
    Wait till you see what I do
    I'm living in New York City
    To find somebody like you
    I said me, you, him, why, why not
    Why not, why not

    I'm living in New York
    In the middle of central park
    Taking over downtown baby
    Long after it gets dark
    Every night is a mystery
    And I just can't sleep
    I gotta stay out all night
    So you can find me

    I'm living in New York City
    I'm living in New York
    I'm living in New York City
    In the center of the world
    I'm living in New York City
    And it's living in me
    Wait till you see what I do
    When I find somebody like you
    I said me, you, him, why, why not
    Why not, why not

    I thought I was leaving
    Till I woke tip and sour
    And I thought I was over
    Till I met New York soldiers
    They keep on working
    Keep on fighting
    America, it's time to wake up

    I'm living in New York City
    I'm living in New York
    I'm living in New York City
    In the center of the world
    I'm living in New York City
    Girls are pretty, streets are witty
    I'm living in New York City
    Where everybody's living, and everybody's winning
    I'm living in New York City
    Where streets are witty, and girls look pretty
    I'm living in New York City
    And it's living in me

    Huh, good call
    I said me, you, him, why, why not
    Why not, why not

    I gotta testify
    I gotta testify
    Good call, testify good call

    I'm living in New York City
    I'm living in New York City
    I'm living in New York City
    I'm living it up, living it up, living it up
    Good God
    And it's living me
    It's living me
    It's living me now
    I'm living it up, living it up
    'Cause baby it's living in me
    Me, you, him, why, why not
    Why not, why notWriter/s: LEMAR RASHAWN GUILLARY, ROBIN A. THICKE, RONNIE LAWRENCE BREAUX JR., WILLIAM TAYLOR
