Here in the streets so mechanized
Rise to the bottom of the meaning of life
Studied all the rules didn't want no part
But I let you in just to break this heart
Even though it was only one night
It was fucking strange

Nina's in the bedroom
She said time to go now
But leavin' it ain't easy
I got to let go
I got to let go
And the hours they ran slow
I said every night she just can't stop sayin'
New York City cops
New York City cops 
New York City cops
They ain't too smart
New York City cops
New York City cops 
New York City cops
They ain't too smart

Well, kill me now, I let you down
I swear one day we're gonna leave this town
Stop
Yes I'm leavin' 
Cause it just won't work
They act like Romans
But they dress like Turks
Sometime, in your prime
See me, I like the summertime

Nina's in the bedroom
She said time to go now
But leavin' it ain't easy
I got to let go
I got to let go
Oh! 
Trapped in an apartment
She would not let them get her
She wrote it in a letter
I got to come clean
The authorities they've seen
Darling I'm somewhere in between
I said every night every night, I just can't stop sayin'
New York City cops
New York City cops 
New York City cops
They ain't too smart
New York City cops
New York City cops 
New York City cops
They ain't too smart
