Dinah Washington - Manhattan

De: Richard Rodgers e Lorenz Hart

We'll take Manhattan
The Bronx and Staten Island too
It's lovely going through the Zoo

It's very fancy
On old Delancey Street, you know
The subway charms us so
When balmy breezes blow
To and fro

And tell me what street
Compares with Mott Street in July
Sweet push carts gently gliding by

The great big city's a wond'rous toy
Just made for a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan into an isle of joy

We'll go to Yonkers
Where true love conquers in the wilds
And starve together, dear in Childs'

We'll go to Coney
And eat bologny on a roll
In Central Park, we'll stroll
Where our first kiss we stole
Soul to soul

And for some high fare
We’ll go to “My Fair Lady” say
We’ll hope it close some day
The city’s clamour can never spoil
The dreams of a boy and girl
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy

The city’s bustle cannot, no it cannot destroy
The dreams of a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan
Into a isle of joy
