Song Meaning
Verse 1
Summer journeys
To Niagara
And to other places
Aggravate all our cares
We'll save our fares
Verse 2
I've a cozy little flat
In what is known as old Manhattan
We'll settle down
Right here in town
Verse 3
We'll have Manhattan
The Bronx and Staten Island, too
It's lovely going through
The zoo
Verse 4
It's very fancy
On old Delancey Street, you know
The subway charms us so
When balmy breezes blow
To and fro
Verse 5
And tell me what street
Compares with Mott Street
In July
Sweet pushcarts gently gliding by
Verse 6
The great big city's a wondrous toy
Just made for a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy
Verse 7
We'll go to Greenwich
Where modern men itch
To be free
And Bowling Green you'll see
With me
Verse 8
We'll bathe at Brighton
The fish you'll frighten
When you're in
Your bathing suit so thin
Will make the shellfish grin
Fin to fin
Verse 9
I'd like to take a
Sail on Jamaica Bay with you
And fair Canarsie's lake
We'll view
Verse 10
The city's bustle cannot destroy
The dreams of a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy
Verse 11
We'll go to Yonkers
Where true love conquers
In the wilds
And starve together, dear
In Childs'
Verse 12
We'll go to Coney
And eat baloney
On a roll
In Central Park we'll stroll
Where our first kiss we stole
Soul to soul
Verse 13
Our future babies
We'll take to "Abie's Irish Rose"
I hope they'll live to see
It close
Verse 14
The city's clamor can never spoil
The dreams of a boy and goil
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy
Verse 15
We'll have Manhattan
The Bronx and Staten Island, too
We'll try to cross Fifth Avenue
As black as onyx
Verse 16
We'll find the Bronnix Park Express
Our Flatbush flat, I guess
Will be a great success
More or less
Verse 17
A short vacation
On Inspiration Point
We'll spend
And in the station house we'll end
Verse 18
But civic virtue cannot destroy
The dreams of a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy
