Empire State of Mind Songtext
von JAY‐Z

Empire State of Mind Songtext

Yeah, yeah I'm out that Brooklyn, now I'm down in Tri Beca right next to Deniro, but I'll be hood forever

I'm the new Sinatra, and since I made it here
I can make it anywhere, yeah, they love me everywhere
I used to cop in Harlem, all of my Dominicano's right there up on Broadway, pull me back to that McDonald's
Took it to my stashbox, 560 State Street
Catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons with them Pastry's
Cruisin' down 8th Street off white Lexus drivin' so slow, but BK is from Texas
Me, I'm out that Bed-Stuy, home of that boy Biggie now I live on Billboard and I brought my boys with me
Say what's up to Ty-Ty, still sippin' mai tai's sittin' courtside, Knicks & Nets give me high five
Nigga I be Spike'd out, I could trip a referee
Tell by my attitude that I'm most definitely from (In New York)
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of there's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York (Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game)

Shit, I made the Yankee hat more famous then a Yankee can


You should know I bleed blue, but I ain't a Crip though
But I got a gang of niggas walkin' with my clique though
Welcome to the melting pot, corners where we sellin' rock
Afrika Bambataa shit, home of the hip-hop
Yellow cab, gypsy cab, dollar cab, holla back for foreigners it ain't for, they act like they forgot how to act

8 million stories, out there in it naked
City, it's a pity, half of y'all won't make it

Me, I got a plug, Special Ed "I got it made" if Jeezy's payin' Le Bron, I'm payin' Dwyane Wade
Three dice Cee-Lo, three Card Monty
Labor Day Parade, rest in peace Bob Marley
Statue of Liberty, long live the World Trade
Long live the King yo, I'm from the Empire State that's (In New york)
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of there's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York

These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York
Lights is blinding, girls need blinders so they can step out of bounds quick, the sidelines is

Lined with casualties, who sip to life casually then gradually become worse, don't bite the apple eve
Caught up in the in-crowd, now you're in style Anna Wintour gets cold, in Vogue with your skin out
City of sin, it's a pity on the wind, good girls gone bad, the city's filled with them


Mami took a bus trip, now she got her bust out everybody ride her, just like a bus route
Hail Mary to the city, you're a virgin and Jesus can't save you, life starts when the church end
Came here for school, graduated to the high life, ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight
MDMA got you feelin' like a champion, the city never sleeps, better slip you an Ambien (In New York)
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of there's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York New York
One hand in the air for the big city

Street lights, big dreams, all lookin' pretty
No place in the world that could compare
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say "Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"
In New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of there's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York

New York...
Beton-Dschungel, aus dem Träume gemacht sind ... dort gibt es nichts, was Du nicht tun könntest... Jetzt bist Du in New York...
Diese Straßen werden Dich brandneu fühlen lassen... Die großen Lichter werden Dich inspirieren... Lass es uns hören für New York
New York
Eine Hand in der Luft für die große Stadt...
Straßenlichter, große Träume, alles sieht hübsch aus... Kein Platz in der Welt ist vergleichbar... Haltet Eure Feuerzeuge in die
Höhe... Alle rufen "Yeah Yeah..."
