Lyrics I LOVE THE BEAUTY
OF THE VIEW AT HOME,
THE PALAZZOS OF PALERMO,
THE CATHEDRAL DOME.
I'VE SEEN PICTURES
OF MILANO AND ROME,
BUT THEY DONT COMPARE
TO THE NEW YORK LIGHTS.
I LOVE OUR ORANGES
RIGHT OFF THE TREE,
AND FRYING SARDINES
JUST FISHED
FROM THE SEA.
BUT THERES ONLY ONE PLACE
THAT I LONG TO BE -
AND THAT'S NEW YORK,
AND THE NEW YORK LIGHTS.

IN SICILY
EVERY TOWN HAS A FOUNTAIN
WHERE THE WHOLE TOWN MEETS,
AND UNDER OUR VOLCANO MOUNTAIN
COUPLES HOLD HANDS,
NICELY,
IN THE STREETS.

I'VE SEEN OUR SEA
AND I'VE SEEN OUR SIGHTS,
OUR BIG HOTEL
ON OUR HILLTOP HEIGHTS,
BUT SINCE I WAS A BOY
I BEEN DREAMING OF NIGHTS
IN NEW YORK,
AND THE NEW YORK LIGHTS.
NEW YORK IS ALWAYS MY DREAM!
A SHINY DREAM FROM AFAR
WHERE THE BRIGHT LIGHTS ARE,
THOSE NEW YORK LIGHTS.
