Fairytale of New York

They got cars big as bars
They got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It´s no place for the old

When you first took my hand on a cold christmas eve
You promised me broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome you were pretty
Queen of new york city

when the band finished playing
they yelled out for more

Sinatra was swinging
all the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night.
