Manhattan Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Summer journeys to Niag'ra
and to other places aggra-
vate 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 Delancy
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 gli-ding by.
Verse 6
The great big city's a wonderous toy
just made for a girl and boy.
We'll turn Manhattan
into an isle of joy!
Verse 7
We'll go to Yonkers
Where true love conquers
In the whiles
And starve together dear, in Chiles
Verse 8
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 9
And "My Fair Lady" is a terrific show they say
We both may see it close, some day
Verse 10
The city's glamour can never spoil
The dreams of a boy and goil
We'll turn Manhattan
into an isle of joy!
