A Texan in New York (PED #14-New York)

they asked me "how y'all doing?"


i told 'em 'y'all' is plural


they were from New York City


i was Texas rural


 


i sang 'em a little George Jones


they sang me Frank Sinatra


before it was said and done


we all said, "man, i gotcha"


 


they took me to Staten Island


Coney Island too


to the top of the Empire State Building


then over to the Bronx Zoo


 


i was offered a diamond rolex


and all the 'best girls' in town


even the Brooklyn Bridge


although i turned it down


 


down in subway tunnels


everyone stopped to give directions


they all knew i was from Texas


even that guy with the eye infection


 


it's funny how the subway at night


turns into another zoo


with creatures strange and exotic


there to entertain me and you


 


we strolled around Central Park


went clubbing on the Upper East Side


we ate lots and lots in Chinatown


it's like i went to Heaven and died


 


then we made it to up to Broadway


and the strip joints on 42nd street


everything's strange in New York City


but never a stranger did i meet
