Never ever been to New York City
Don’t know if I ever will
Some of my friends say I should go there
I think I’ll just hang around here until

Never could stand to take a telling
Even when I knew I stood wrong
Used to get up early in the morning
It’s funny the things you do when you’re young

Oh no, it’s almost time to go
Think I’ll step outside into the sun
Hey hey, it’s almost midday
I wanna have a band before the winter comes

Watched a super test yesterday morning
Don’t they all look pretty in their creams
Wearing hats that look like motorbike helmets
Tell me what happened to all the gentlemen?

Think I’ll go get drunk this time on Friday
Going home I’ll sing a sad old tune
Just enough so I feel friendly
I’ll be OK if I make it to my room

Oh no, it’s almost time to go
Think I’ll step outside and take in some sun
Hey hey, it’s almost midday
Hope to have a band before the winter comes
Hope to have a band before the winter comes
Hope to have a band before the winter comes
