Jay-Z: verse 1]

yeah

Yeah I’m out that Brooklyn.

Now I’m down in Tribeca.

Right next to DeNiro

But I’ll be hood forever

I’m the new Sinatra

And, since I made it here

I can make it anywhere

Yeah they love me everywhere

I used to ‘cop’ in Harlem

Hola my Dominicanos

Right there up on Broadway

Brought me back to that McDonalds

Took it to my stash spot

560 State Street

Catch me in the kitchen like the Simmons’ whipping Pastry

Cruising down 8th Street

Off-white Lexus

Driving so slow

but BK, is from Texas

Me I’m out that Bed-Stuy

Home of that boy Biggie

Now I live on Billboard

and I brought my boys with me

Say what up to TyTy

Still sipping Mai Tai’s

Sitting courtside

Knicks and Nets give me high-5

Nigga, I be ‘Spike’-d out

I could trip a referee

tell by my attitude that I’m MOST DEFINITELY FROM…

[Alicia Keys: Hook]

New York

Concrete Jungle where dreams are made of,

There’s nothing you can’t do,

Now You’re In New York

The streets will make you feel brand new,

the lights will inspire you,

[Jay-Z: Verse 2]

Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game,

you should know I bleed Blue, but I aint a crip tho,

but i got a gang of n****s walking with my click though,

welcome to the melting pot,

corners where we selling rocks,

afrika bambaataa sh-t,

home of the hip hop,

yellow cab, gypsy cab, dollar cab, holla back,

for foreigners it aint fair they act like they forgot how to add

8 million stories out there and their naked,

city its a pity half of y’all won’t make it,

me i gotta plug special ed i got it made,

If Jeezys payin LeBron, I’m paying Dwayne Wade,

3 dice cee-lo

3 card molly,

labor day parade, rest in peace Bob Marley,

Statue of Liberty, long live the World trade,

long live the king yo,

[Jay-Z: verse 3]

Lights is blinding,

girls need blinders

so they can step out of bounds quick,

the side lines is lined with casualties,

who sip the light casually, then gradually become worse,

don’t bite the apple Eve,

caught up in the in crowd,

now your in-style,

Anna Wintour gets cold in vogue with your skin out,

city of sin its a pity on a whim,

good girls gone bad, the cities filled with them,

Mami took a bus trip now she got her bust out,

everybody ride her, just like a bus route,

Hail Mary to the city your a Virgin,

and Jesus can’t save you life starts when the church ends,

came here for school, graduated to the high life,

ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight,

M.D.M.A got you feeling like a champion,

the city never sleeps better slip you a Ambien

One hand in the air for the big city

street lights big dreams all lookin pretty

no place in the world that can compare

put your lighters in the air

everybody say

yeah
