(+Lyrics+ meaning+translation) Music review: New York City Girl by Fireboy DML

I have been hearing this song for weeks via my boisterous neighbors’ loudspeakers, but it never occurred to me that Fireboy DML was the voice behind the song. This song di (is) dope; so dope!

What is the song New York City Girl by Fireboy DML about?

New York City is a famous city in New York State, America. It was formerly the capital of the USA before it was changed to Washington D.C. The capital of New York is Albany, and it is the home to Hollywood. What do I mean? New York is where you would find lots of actors, musicians, producers, and directors.

Summer, on the other hand, is a period characterized by hot weather. It comes with loads of heat. It is the warmest season of the year as it comes with lots of sun.

In the song, the artist expresses his desire to spend more time and dance with a beautiful and sexy lady he has intense feelings for before she finally returns to New York City for summer. He, however, desires to elope with her kind of lady because of the feelings he has for her.

Lyrically: Perfect! The lyrics are well written and are in array. They are meaningful, clever, and expand listeners’/viewers’ vocabulary. It is the first song by Fireboy DML that the lyrics are in perfect order. 

The song comes in two verses; the chorus was taken four times. The artist sang in Standard English; no pidgin, no Yoruba.

Vocal: Rich, warm, and intune. The artist was consistent with the vocal quality and did not go out of tune.

Melody: So tuneful! The rhythm is engaging and catchy. I love the adlib; very sonorous. The rhythm flows well. There was consistency with the style of rhythm. The major instruments used in the composition of the song include drums and piano.

Lyrics to New York City gal by Fireboy DML

Chorus

Fine girl from New York City

 I don’t mind if you give me chance

 Can I have just one more dance?

 Before you leave for the summer time

 Runaway with me

 I don’t care if you got a man

 Can I have just one more dance?

 Before you leave for the summer time

Verse 1

She just came into town last month

 And she won’t be around that long

 I just wanna have a good time (Good time)

 Maybe once maybe two times (Two times)

She got the prettiest smile

 And she got the wittiest mind

 Say before you catch that flight

 Can I have a wickedest whine, whine?

Chorus

Fine girl from New York City

I don’t mind if you give me chance

Can I have just one more dance?

Before you leave for the summer time

Runaway with me

I don’t care if you got a man

Can I have just one more dance?

Before you leave for the summer time

Verse 2

Yeah, she makes me sing

She always got me acting out

 She’s like the wind

 She’s just a traveler passing by

 Maybe in another life

 These feelings won’t die

 Before you catch that flight

 Can I have a kiss one time, time?

Chorus

Fine girl from New York City

I don’t mind if you give me chance

Can I have just one more dance?

Before you leave for the summer time

(Runaway, oh-oh-oh) Run away with me

 I don’t care if you got a man

 Can I have just one more dance?

 Before you leave for the summer time

Repeat chorus

Fine girl from New York City

I don’t mind if you give me chance

Can I have just one more dance?

Before you leave for the summer time (Yeah-yeah)

 Runaway with me

 I don’t care if you got a man

 Can I have just one more dance?

 Before you leave for the summer time

Outro

Runaway with me

 From New York City

 Give me that one more dance

 Before you leave for the summer time

 Before you runaway…

 Before you leave for the summer time

 xxxxxxxxxxxxx

xxxxxxxxxxxxx
