You're a Long Islander...

then:

You don't live in Long Island. You live ON Long Island.

Billy Joel said it best, "either you date a rich girl from the North Shore, or a cool girl from the South Shore."

New York State Of Mind (Original)

It comes down to reality-and it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide,
Don't care if it's Chinatown or Riverside,
I don't have any reasons, I've left them all behind-
I'm in a New York state of mind.

 

New York State Of Mind (different Live Versions):

It comes down to reality-and it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide,
Don't care if it's Riverhead or Oceanside, (It's mean the Location ON Long Island)
I don't have any reasons, I've left them all behind-
I'm in a New York state of mind.

 

The Downeaster "Alexa"


Well I'm on the Downeaster "Alexa"
And I'm cruising through Block Island Sound
I have chartered a course to the Vineyard
(http://livineyardtours.com/)
But tonight I am Nantucket bound

We took on diesel back in Montauk yesterday
And left this morning from the bell in Gardner's Bay
Like all the locals here I've had to sell my home
Too proud to leave I worked my fingers to the bone

So I could own my Downeaster "Alexa"
