take off for New York

‘cause I lost the good lord

don’t you, don’t you, don’t you hate it

ashes in the snow

don’t you, don’t you, don’t you love it

all the broadway shows

ashes in the snow

why don’t I fall in love today

or why don’t I smoke it all away

on the seventh floor at Waverly and Gay

mother dear, I’m here to stay

back in Minnesota all you have is space

you cried when I told you I couldn’t find my place

don’t you, don’t you, don’t you hate it

sobbing in the streets

don’t you, don’t you, don’t you love it

a million folx to meet

ashes in the snow

why don’t I fall in love today

or why don’t I eat my fears away

if I try to go I’ll probably miss the train

mother dear, I’m here to stay

if I try to go, if I try to go…

don’t you, don’t you, don’t you hate it

dirty crowded place

don’t you, don’t you, don’t you love it

wonderful escape

ashes in the snow

why don’t I fall in love today

or why don’t I smoke it all away

on the seventh floor at Waverly and Gay

mother dear, I’ll be okay

why don’t I find a job today

or why don’t I throw my phone away

if I try to go I’ll probably miss the train

mother dear, I’m here to stay
