Cecilia Dale – Manhattan lyrics

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

I'd like to take
A sail
On Jamaica Bay
With you
And fair
Canarsie's Lakes
We'll view

The city's bustle
Cannot destroy
Oooh
The dreams
Of a girl and boy
We'll turn
Manhattan
Into
An isle of joy

Ooh, yeah

And tell me
What street
Compares
With Mott Street
In July?
Sweet pushcarts
Gently gli-ding by

The great big city's
A wonderous toy
Ooh
Just made
For a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy
