New York's My Home
by: Sammy Davis, Jr.
Lyrics by: Gordon Jenkins
1956

Listen all you New Yorkers
There's a rumor going round
That some of you good people
Want to leave this town

Well, you better consult with me
Before you go (yeah)
Cause I been to all those places
And I know

[...]

So, save your time and trouble
Save your railroad fare
I said save your time and trouble
Save your railroad fare

Cause when you leave New York
Man, you don't go anywhere
