Lyrics

Baby Jean
Vaudeville queen
She love to ragtime in the night
I know I?m gonna miss my baby Jean
Cause she treats me oh so right

But the New York Skyline
It?s calling me home tonight
Female, feline, feminine
She?s been making my world so bright

Hindsight, foresight
Sometimes we?ve got no sight at all
New love, true love
Sometimes we?ve got no love at all

But the New York Skyline it?s
Calling me home tonight
Female, feline, feminine
She?s been making my world so bright

New York Skyline, New York Skyline
I can see those city lights
And I can feel those neon signs
Bright lights, big city
Well it must be modern times
Yes it must be modern times
Well it must be modern times
