U can dance if U want 2, all the critics love U n New York
U don't have 2 keep the beat, they'll still think it's neat n New York
U can wear what U want 2, it doesn't matter n New York
U could cut off all ur hair, I don't think they'd care n New York

All the critics love U n New York

Why U can play what U want 2, all the critics love U n New York
They won't say that U're naive if U play what U believe n New York
Purple love-amor is all U're n it 4 but don't show it
The reason that U're cool is cuz U're from the old school and they know it

All the critics love U n New York
U can dance if U want 2, all the critics love U n New York
U can dance if U want 2, all the critics love U n New York
All the critics love U, all the critics love U
All the critics love U n New York

It's time 4 a new direction, it's time 4 jazz 2 die
4th day of November, we need a purple high
Don't give up, I'll still love U

All the critics love U n New York
All the critics love U n New York
All the critics love U, all the critics love U
All the critics love U n New York
Body don't wanna quit, gotta get another hit {repeat}
Ooh, yeah

On the 1
All the critics love U, all the critics love U
All the critics love U n New York
Whataya lookin' at, punk?
Look out all U hippies, U ain't as sharp as me
It ain't about the trippin' but the sexuality, turn it up
U can dance if U want 2

All the critics love U n New York
All the critics love U n New York
Yes, we're certain of it, he's definitely masturbating
Whoo!
All the critics love U n New York
Take a bath, hippie!
All the critics love U n New York {repeat}
New York {repeat}
