Autumn in New York

Autumn in new york
Why does it seem so inviting
Autumn in new york
It spells the thrill of first-nighting

Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds
In canyons of steel
They’re making me feel – I’m home

It’s autumn in new york
That brings the promise of new love
Autumn in new york
Is often mingled with pain

Dreamers with empty hands
They sigh for exotic lands

It’s autumn in new york
It’s good to live it again

Autumn in new york
The gleaming rooftops at sundown
Oh, autumn in new york
It lifts you up when you run down

Yes, jaded rou‚s and gay divorc‚es
Who lunch at the ritz
Will tell you that it’s divine

This autumn in new york
Transforms the slums into mayfair
Oh, autumn in new york
You’ll need no castles in spain

Yes, lovers that bless the dark
On the benches in central park
Greet autumn in new york
It’s good to live it again

– Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong
