THE BOY FROM NEW YORK CITY (as recorded by Michelle Creber)

Ooh-ah ooh-ah cool cool kitty, tell us about the boy from New York City

Ooh-ah ooh-ah c'mon Kitty, tell us about the boy from New York City


He's kinda tall, he's really fine

Someday I hope to make him mine all mine

And he's neat, and oh so sweet

And just the way he looked at me swept me off my feet

Ooo-wee, you ought to come and see

How he walks, mmh and how he talks


Ooh-ah ooh-ah cool cool kitty, tell us about the boy from New York City


He's really down, and he's no clown

He has the finest penthouse I've ever seen in town

And he's cute, in his mohair suit

And he keeps his pockets full of spending loot

Ooo-wee, I said you ought to come and see

His new guitar, I'm talkin' bout a brand new car

Every time he says he loves me

Chills run down my spine

Every time he says he'll miss me

Oh that makes me feel so fine

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah


Woah he can dance, what a great romance

And you know I fell in love with just one glance

He was shy, oh and so was I

And now I know I'll never ever say goodbye

Ooo-wee, say you ought to come and see

He's the most, from coast to coast


Oh yeah, woah yeah, I'm talkin bout that boy, the boy from New York City

Talkin bout my sweet little boy, the boy from New York City

Oh that boy is fine, I sure got ta make him mine

I'm talkin about the boy, the boy from New York City

The boy from New York City
