lyrics

A TALE OF TWO CITIES

YOU'VE GOT NEW YORK ON YOUR FACE
BUT L.A. IN YOUR EYES
YOU WANT TO LEAVE THIS SNOWY SCENE
FOR SMOGGY WESTERN SKIES

FROM THE BIG APPLE IN YOUR HAND
TO THE STARS AT YOUR FEET
AND YOUR NAME UP IN LIGHTS
TO DOWN ON THE STREET

IT'S A TALE OF TWO CITIES
OFTEN TOLD BUT TRUE
A TALE OF TWO CITIES
WITH NOTHING TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE TWO

WITH NEW YORK IN YOUR HAIR
BUT L.A. ON YOUR MIND
WILL YOU FORGET THESE AUTUMN LEAVES
ON HOLLYWOOD AND VINE

YOU'VE MANHATTAN ON YOUR LIPS
BUT FEEL THE TASTE OF MEXICO
WITH CUERVO IN YOUR GLASS
WHEN THE SANTA ANAS BLOW

IT'S A TALE OF TWO CITIES
OFTEN TOLD BUT TRUE
A TALE OF TWO CITIES
WITH NOTHING TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE TWO

WAVE GOODBYE TO WALL STREET
A FOND FAREWELL TO FIFTH AVENUE
SAY HELLO TO THE RHYTHM OF THE BLUES

IT'S A TALE OF TWO CITIES
OFTEN TOLD BUT TRUE
A TALE OF TWO CITIES
WITH NOTHING TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE TWO

IT'S A TALE OF TWO CITIES
OFTEN TOLD BUT TRUE
A TALE OF TWO CITIES
WITH NOTHING TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE TWO

IT'S A TALE OF TWO CITIES
