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
don't think they'd care N New York
All the critics love U N New York

Y U can play what U want 2
All the critics love U N New York
They won't say that U'r naive
If U play what U believe N New York
Purple love-amor is all U'r N it 4
But don't show it
The reason that U'r cool
Is cuz U'r from the old school & 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, '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}
