Spoken:
Her name is … Lola!
She's from Tulsa.. yeah!
Just arrived, two suitcases in hand
And a dream in her heart

Just arrived track seventeen
All the way from Tulsa Okla-nowhere
Where's her chauffeured limousine?
Where's the marching band?
Just in time to take the town
And though her knees are shaking
She's making her stand

It all starts now
I can see her name in neon
I won't allow
Anyone to disagree
Don't ask me how
But before too long
She'll be on some marquee
New York or bust!
She's just arrived!

Just arrived track seventeen
(Just arrived track twenty four)
All the way from Tulsa Oklahoma
(All the way from St. Paul, Minnesota)
(All the way from Fargo, North Dakota)
Though she's still a little green
(Marching through the open door)
When she left, she left her past behind
(Wonder what she'll find)
Just imagine, here she is the girl from work
(The soda jerk)
(The groc'ry clerk)

The kid they all made fun of
Is one of a kind

It all starts now
Look who's currently appearing
This girl's a wow
All the magazines agree
She'll take her bow
And the world will all be cheering, wait and see
New York or bust
She's just arrived

Hey!
(Hey! which way's uptown?)
Somebody said they're auditioning for "south pacific"
(Where's the palace?)
Say!
(Hey!, she's from Dallas!)
Somewhere I read they need lookers and she looks terrific
(That one's Alice!)
This is her moment
(Hey, world here I come!)
She knows it she can taste it
And she sure ain't gonna waste it
Cause it's time she faced it

It all starts now
(Right now!)
I can see her name in neon
(I can see her name in blazing neon)
This girl's a wow
(And how!)
All the magazines agree
(No way anyone would dare to disagree)
She'll take her bow
(Oh, wow!)
And before too long she'll be on some marquee

Gathering dust
She just survived
Now, New York or bust
She's just arrived!
Hey world
She's just arrived!
