[Verse 1]
Am
Here in the streets so mechanised
G
Rise to the bottom of the meaning of life
Am
Studied all the rules and I want no part
G
But I let you in just to break this heart
Am
Even though it was only one night it was
G
........Fucking strange

[Pre-Chorus]
Am
Nina's in the bedroom, 
G
She said time to go now
       D
But leavin', it ain't easy
      E
I've got to let go, Oh I've got to let go
          G
And the hours they ran slow
I said every night she just can't stop sayin'
 
[Chorus]

Am  G x4 (intro) (solo)

[Verse 2]
Am                                G
Oh, kill me now cos I let you down
Am                                        G
I swear one day I'm gonna leave this town
N.C.
Stop
Am                        G
Yes I'm leavin', Cos this just won't work
Am                                 G                           
They act like Romans, But they're just like Turks
Am                        G
Some time, in your prime, See me, I like the summertime
Am
but hey...

[Pre-Chorus]
Am
Nina's in the bedroom, 
G
She said time to go now
       D
Oh leavin', it ain't easy
      E
I've got to let go, I've got, to let, go, Oh
Am
Trapped in an apartment
G
She would not let them get her
      D
She wrote it in a letter
E
Oh I've got to come clean
The authorities, they've seen
                 G
And darling I'm somewhere in between
I said every night, she just can't stop sayin'

[Chorus]
C                   F
New York City Cops, New York City Cops
C              C/E  F                G
New York City Cops, They ain't too smart
C                   F
New York City Cops, New York City Cops
C              C/E  F                G
New York City Cops, They ain't too smart
