Activity

Listen to the song and complete the lyrics


Start spreading the news
I’m leaving
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

These vagabond
Are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York


I want to wake up in a city
That doesn't
And find I'm king of the hill
Top of the heap

These little town blues
Are melting
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York


If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
It's up to
New York, New York [x2]


I want to wake up in a city
That never
And find I'm a number one
Top of the list
King of the hill
A number

These little town blues
All melting
I’m gonna make a brand new start of it
In old New York

And if I can make it there
I'm gonna make it anywhere
It's up to
New York, New York, New York
