Beg to Differ

by Patty Larkin

New York is far away from here
New York is far away from here
And you can see it in the rain
And you can see it in the cheap suits and ties

It's just a fallen away frontier
It's just a fallen away frontier
And they are fencing it with fast food chains
And buildings that go up before your eyes

You say everybody's marching to the same beat
Marching to the same beat of the drum
Everybody's thinking of the same thing
But I will I will I will
Beg to differ with you

New York is far away from here
New York is far away from here
And you can see it in the coffee shops
And catch it from the corner of your eye

It's just a layer of thin veneer
It's just a layer of thin veneer
And it stretches like a parking lot
That's swept up in a string of satellites

You say everybody's marching to the same beat
Marching to the same beat of the drum
Everybody's thinking of the same thing
But I will I will I will
Beg to differ with you

New York is far away from here
New York is far away from here
And you can see it in the setting sun
See it just before you say goodbye

It's just a landscape of souvenirs
It's just a landscape of souvenirs
And I'm embarassed to be human
I'm embarassed that I want what I despise

You say everybody's marching to the same beat
Marching to the same beat of the drum
Everybody's thinking of the same thing
But I will I will I will
Beg to differ with you
