    I don't know
    Nothing 'bout New York

    All I know iz
    I did some research
    And I wanna go

    New York
    Seemz to be
    The place

    I mean
    For radio,tv,music
    And all da rest

    I'll give my best
    When I get to New York

    Even how I dress
    When it's freezing cold

    Leather Jackets
    Boots and the whole
    9 yards

    Coming fully
    Prepared

    And connections
    Up to ying yang

    Will prove me
    Raw

    Naw, I'm just playin

    All I'm saying
    Is I wanna go there

    So I wanna be there
    And do my thing

    Let my voice ring
    And my poetry sing

    Let my personality out
    And absorb into the crowd

    I know I don't know
    A thing
    'bout New York
    But that's the place
    I wanna be.

    when you come

    to New York - you need an iron will
    be confident cause the streets don't care
    you need strength to put up with the pace
    once you get pass that you'll be alright
    i wish you all the best if you come here
    let me know we can link up. i can show you around with no problems i mean if i can't get around these 5 boroughs then i'm really lost

    hey

    Been through the fire and the rain
    Oakland City full of pain
    And it don't seem strange
    The urban heat

    Victorius
    I'm notorious
    For cheating death

    I pull up my strength
    And ma shield

    Jesus got my back
    When nobody willl


    Sooo...
    Yeah if you could show me around
    I'd appreciate!
    Ha ha ha

    I'm sure
    I can beat the odds

    As long as I have a friend
    To depend upon!

    Ha ha ha

    Tanx so'ja!

    I fell in love with New York when I was a child...it's a place that can grab your heart and never turn it loose...

    New York is still my favorite city on the planet...

    Enjoy yourself!

    ...maybe...in the winter...
    (eekK~)
