AUTUMN IN NEW YORK
Ella Fitzgerald


[Ella]

Autumn in New York

Why does it seem so inviting

Autumn in New York

It spells the thrill of first-nighting



glittering crowds and shimmering clouds

In canyons of steel

They're making me feel - I'm home



It's autumn in New York

That brings the promise of new love

Autumn in New York

Is often mingled with pain



Dreamers with empty hands

They sigh for exotic lands



It's autumn in New York

It's good to live it again



[Louis]

Autumn in New York

The gleaming rooftops at sundown

Oh, Autumn in New York

It lifts you up when you run down



Yes, jaded rou's and gay divorc'es

Who lunch at the Ritz

Will tell you that it's divine



This autumn in New York

Transforms the slums into Mayfair

Oh, Autumn in New York

You'll need no castles in Spain



Yes, Lovers that bless the dark

On the benches in Central Park

Greet autumn in New York

It's good to live it again



[trumpet solo]



[Ella]

Autumn in New York

That brings the promise of new love

Autumn in New York

Is often mingled with pain



Dreamers with empty hands

They sigh for exotic lands



It's autumn in New York

It's good to live it again
