Lyrics Manhattan

                            Summer journeys to niagВ’raAnd to other places aggra-Vate all our cares.WeВ’ll save our fares!IВ’ve a cozy little flat inWhat is known as old manhattanWeВ’ll settle downRight here in town!WeВ’ll have manhattanThe bronx and statenIsland too.ItВ’s lovely going throughThe zoo!ItВ’s very fancyOn old delancyStreet you know.The subway charms us soWhen balmy breezes blowTo and fro.And tell me what streetCompares with mott streetIn july? Sweet pushcarts gently gli-ding by.The great big cityВ’s a wonderous toyJust made for a girl and boy.WeВ’ll turn manhattanInto an isle of joy!WeВ’ll go to yonkersWhere true love conquersIn the whilesAnd starve together dear, in chilesWeВ’ll go to coneyAnd eat baloney on a rollIn central park weВ’ll strollWhere our first kiss we stoleSoul to soulAnd my fair lady is a terrific show they sayWe both may see it close, some dayThe cityВ’s glamour can never spoilThe dreams of a boy and goilWeВ’ll turn manhattanInto an isle of joy!Transcribed by todd peach <todd@thepeaches.com>(from this specific recording)Guy from bath england sent me this more complete version:VerseSummer journeys to niagВ’raAnd to other places aggra-Vate all our cares.WeВ’ll save our fares;IВ’ve a cozy little flat inWhat is known as old manhattan,WeВ’ll settle downRight here in town.Chorus 1WeВ’ll have manhattan,The bronx and statenIsland too.ItВ’s lovely going through the zoo.ItВ’s very fancyOn old delanceyStreet you know.The subway charms us so,When balmy breezes blowTo and fro.And tell me what streetCompares with mott streetIn july? Sweet pushcarts gently gliding by.The great big cityВ’s a wondrous toyJust made for a girl and boy --WeВ’ll turn manhattanInto an isle of joy.Chorus 2WeВ’ll go to greenwich,Where modern men itchTo be free,And bowling green youВ’ll see with me.WeВ’ll bathe at brighton,The fish youВ’ll frightenWhen youВ’re in,Your bathing suit so thinWill make the shellfish grin,Fin to fin.IВ’d like to take aSail on jamaicaBay with you,And fair canarsieВ’s lakes weВ’ll view.The cityВ’s bustle cannot destroyThe dreams of a girl and boy --WeВ’ll turn manhattanInto an isle of joy.Chorus 3WeВ’ll go to yonkers,Where true love conquersIn the wildsAnd starve together, dear, in childsВ’.WeВ’ll go to coneyAnd eat bolognyOn a roll,In central park weВ’ll strollWhere our first kiss we stole,Soul to soul.And south pacificIs a terrificShow they say,We both may see it close some day.The cityВ’s clamour can never spoilThe dreams of a boy and goil --WeВ’ll turn manhattanInto an isle of joy.Chorus 4WeВ’ll have manhattan,The bronx and statenIsland too,WeВ’ll try to cross fifth avenue.As black as onyxWeВ’ll find the bronixPark express,Our flatbush flat, I guess,Will be a great success,More or less.A short vacationOn inspirationPoint weВ’ll spend,And in the station house weВ’ll end.But civic virtue cannot destroyThe dreams of a girl and boy --WeВ’ll turn manhattanInto an isle of joy!
