New York City Cops
The Strokes Lyrics


Oh!
Ha-ha, I meant ah!
No, I didn't mean that at all
Ooh-ooh

Here in the streets so mechanized
Rise to the bottom of the meaning of life
Studied all the rules and didn't want no part
But I let you in just to break this heart
Even though it was only one night, it was
Fucking strange

Nina's in the bedroom,
She said, "Time to go now"
But leavin' it ain't easy
I got to let go, oh, I got to let go
And the hours they ran slow
I said, every night, she just can't stop saying

New York City cops, New York City cops
New York City cops, but they ain't too smart
New York City cops, New York City cops
New York City cops, but they ain't too smart

Well, kill me now 'cause I let you down
I swear one day I'm gonna leave this town
Stop!
Yes, I'm leaving, 'cause it just won't work
And they act like Romans, but they dress like Turks
Some time in your prime
See me, I like the summertime but, hey

Nina's in the bedroom
She said, "Time to go now"
But leaving, it ain't easy
Oh, I got to let go, oh, I got to let go, oh
Trapped in an apartment
She would not let them get her
She wrote it in a letter
I got to come clean but the authorities they've seen
Darling, I'm somewhere in between
I said, every night, she just can't stop saying

New York City cops, New York City cops
New York City cops, but they ain't too smart
New York City cops, New York City cops
New York City cops, but they ain't too smart

New York City cops, but they ain't too smart

If there's something wrong with this album, I haven't found it in over 10 years.

Filo

@Jesús Plaza bruh

A totally random person

Trying Your Luck and Take It Or Leave it are my least favorites, but I still like them. So yeah, it’s a perfect album

Arpit Das

It ends

Thomas Rogers

@Kenneth Roper yeah. I lived in NYC in 2001. Bought the British edition prior to 9/11 at Virgin Records.

James Hateley

The September 11 terrorist attacks in New York City postponed the group's CMJ Music Marathon performance, and shifted RCA's U.S. release of Is This It from September 25 to October 9. A newly recorded song, "When It Started", replaced "New York City Cops" on the CD version of the album after the Strokes witnessed the "valiant response" of the city's police department during the tragedy. The vinyl release retained the original track list.
