Cole Porter's The New Yorkers the Musical - I Happen to Like New York Lyrics


I happen to like New York
I happen to like this town
I like the city air
I like to drink of it
The more I know New York
The more I think of it
I like the sight
And sound and even the stink of it
I happen to like New York
I like to go to Battery Park
And watch those liners moving in
I often ask myself
"Why should it be
That they should come from far across the sea?"
I suppose it's because they all agree with me
They happen to like New York
Last Sunday afternoon
I took a trip to Hackensack
And after I gave Hackensack the once-over
I took the next train back
I happen to like this town
I happen to love this burg
And when I have the world a last farewell
And the undertaker starts to ring my funeral bell
I don't want to go to heaven
Don't want to go to hell
I happen to like New York
I happen to like New York
