Watch: New Singing Lesson Videos Can Make Anyone A Great Singer
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 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 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 Greenwich Where modern men itch To be free And Bowling Green you'll see With me 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 I'd like to take a Sail on Jamaica Bay with you And fair Canarsie's lake We'll view The city's bustle cannot destroy The dreams of 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 baloney On a roll In Central Park we'll stroll Where our first kiss we stole Soul to soul Our future babies We'll take to "Abie's Irish Rose" I hope they'll live to see It close The city's clamor can never spoil The dreams of a boy and goil We'll turn Manhattan Into an isle of joy We'll have Manhattan The Bronx and Staten Island, too We'll try to cross Fifth Avenue As black as onyx We'll find the Bronnix Park Express Our Flatbush flat, I guess Will be a great success More or less A short vacation On Inspiration Point We'll spend And in the station house we'll end But civic virtue cannot destroy The dreams of a girl and boy We'll turn Manhattan Into an isle of joy
