I’m in a New york state of mind

The Vertical HourBut I know what I’m needing
and I’m not going to waste more time
I’m in a NewYork state of mind.

It was so easy living day by day
out of touch with the rhythm and blues
Now I need a little give and take
the New York Times and the Daily News, ohh

Comes down to reality and its fine with me
cause I’ve let it slide
I don’t care if it’s China Town
or up on Riverside
I don’t have any reasons
cause I’ve left them all behind
I’m in a New York State of mind …

I just spent an enormous amount of money.
On 2 tickets.
For a theatre show.
In New York.
Around christmas time.
It has Bill Nighy in it.

I am nearly dying of happiness here.

Christmas time in New York, I wonder how that is going to be.
Now I all I need is a planeticket, and a place to sleep there.

Oh, 2 tickets you might wonder?
Yes. It is for 2 different dates. One time just isn’t enough.
Call me crazy. Go on. I am crazy. Still. Crazy.

Going crazy in an internetcafe gives you a lot of attention…

  1. “The city never sleeps, full of villians and creeps
    That’s where I learned to do my hustle had to scuffle with freaks
    I’ma addict for sneakers, twenties of buddah and bitches with beepers
    In the streets I can greet ya, about blunts I teach ya
    Inhale deep like the words of my breath
    I never sleep, cause sleep is the cousin of death
    I lay puzzle as I backtrack to earlier times
    Nothing’s equivalent, to the new york state of mind”

    Apologies for the use of the word “bitches” right there.

  2. Still crazy – after all these years (Paul Simon).
    You’ve only got one life so go for it…

    (having a flu but watching a great film on a very small tv-screen :-)
