Summer journeys to Niagara and to other places Aggravate all our cares, we'll save our fares I've a cozy little flat in what is known as old Manhattan We'll settle down right here in town We'll have Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island too It's lovely going through the zoo It's very fancy on old Delancy 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 pushcarts gently gliding by The great big city's a wondrous 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 whiles And starve together, dear, in Chiles 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 And "My Fair Lady" is a terrific show, they say We both may see it close some day The city's glamor can never spoil the dreams of a boy and goil We'll turn Manhattan into an isle of joy
