Live from New York, it’s petit Hiboux

You called me last night on the telephone

And I was glad to hear from you ’cause I was all alone

You said, “It’s snowing, it’s snowing!

God, I hate this weather.”

Now I walk through blizzards just to get us back together.

We met in the springtime at a rock-and-roll show

It was on the Bowery when it was time to go

We kissed on the subway in the middle of the night

I held your hand, you held mine,

it was the best night of my life.

‘Cause everyone’s your friend in New York City

And everything looks beautiful

when you’re young and pretty

The streets are paved with diamonds

and there’s just so much to see

But the best thing about New York City is you and me.

– They Might be Giants, New York City
Reasons That This is Obviously My Song:
1. Um, it’s about New York City and being young and pretty.
2. Falling in love is sort of my new thing.
3. I do sort of hate the snow sometimes.
4. The best thing about New York City is you and me, baby.

  1. [sigh of relief] glad i have Sub-High Uborkite approval then. this is a tough crowd. [/sigh of relief].

  2. He’s more sort of middle-management. He comes just above the lurkers. They hate it when he does though.

  3. This song is just perfect: Stuart & krissa’s theme.
