On The Town, 1944
We've got one day her, and no another minute
To see the famous sights;
We'll find the romance and danger waiting in it
Beneath the Broadway lights;
But we've hair on our chest,
So what we like the best are the nights,
Sights, lights, nights.
New York, New York,
A helluva town,
The Bronx is up
But the Battery's down,
And people ride in a hole in the ground;
New York, New York,
It's a helluca town!
THe famous places to visit are so many,
Or so the guidebooks say;
I promised daddy I wouldn't miss on any,
And we have just one day;
Gotta see the wholte town
Right from Yonkers on down to the bay
In just one day.
New York, New York,
A visitor's place,
Where no one lives on account of the pace,
But seven million are screaming for space;
New York, New York,
It's a visitor's place!
Manhattan women are dressed in silk and satin,
Or so the fellows say;
There's just on thing that's important in Manhattan
When you have just one day;
Gotta pick up a date
Maybe seven or eight on your way,
In just one day.
New York, New York,
A helluva town,
The Bronx is up
But the Battery's down,
And people ride in a hole in the ground;
New York, New York,
It's a helluva town!
