Lyrics
(verse)
I love to watch all the people skate by that great big Christmas tree,
The Empire State is all dressed up in bright lights of red and green.
It's Christmas in New York.

(verse)
There's a little bar off the FDR where we meet each Christmas eve,
And sing Christmas songs the whole night long and each year when we leave.

(chorus)
We hail a taxi and take a ride, look at all those New York City sights,
When we pass that Lady with her torch, I thank God I?m here living one year,
Of Christmas in New York.

(verse)
Each year we start there in Central Park, a horse and carriage all our own,
Then we bundle up that child in us, we've never quite outgrown.

(instrumental interlude)

(repeat chorus)

I thank God I'm here living one year,
Of Christmas in New York.
