Courtney: What's not to love about New York City?
The taxis honk out a New York ditty!
The crime is high!
The pigeons fly!
What's not to love about New York?!?
Owen: The lights are brighter!
The fun is funner!
The bagels are bagel-er,
And the bums are bummer!
The dirt and grime make every alley shine!
What's not to love about New York?!? Oops!
Lindsay: The stores, and the fashion!
Big shows where stars cash in!
It's crazy, 'cause the city never sleeps!
DJ: Dance break!
Lindsay: For the love of dance, stop!!
Courtney, Gwen, Heather and Sierra: Subway trains and the hustle-bustle!
Courtney, Gwen, Heather, Leshawna, Lindsay and Sierra: Cappuccinos while the mobsters tussle!
Owen: And pretzel stands for all us pretzel fans!
Noah: Whoa, hot, hot, hot!
Owen: What's not to love...
Lindsay and Owen: What's not to love...
Courtney, Gwen, Heather, Lindsay, Noah, Owen and Sierra: What's not to love... about New York?!?
- During some parts of the song, the teams correspond to their team colors:
- This is the third song started by Courtney, the others being Come Fly With Us and Before We Die.
- The homeless man that Owen jumps over is identical in appearance to the one in Celebrity Manhunt intro behind Josh and the one that stole Ezekiel's wallet in Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special.
- This is the first of two songs of the season in which various monuments of the location are shown throughout the song, the other being Shear the Sheep.

- During Lindsay's solo, she is dressed like Holly Golightly as she is depicted in the opening scene of the 1961 film version of Breakfast at Tiffany's.
- Owen dancing along the keys of the big piano may be a reference to the 1988 comedy movie, Big.
