Glee – Broadway Baby lyrics

I'm just a Broadway Baby
Walking off my tired feet
Pounding Forty Second Street
To be in a show, oh

Broadway Baby
Learnin' how to sing and dance
Waiting for that one big chance
To be in a show, oh

Blaine and Rachel:
Gee, I'd like to be on some marquee
All twinkling lights
A spark to pierce the dark
From Batt'ry Park to Washington Heights

Some day maybe

All my dreams will be repaid

Heck, I'd even play the maid

Blaine and Rachel:
To be in a show

Hey, Mister producer
I'm talkin' to you, sir
I don't need a lot
Only what I got
Plus a tube of greasepaint and a follow spot

I'm a Broadway Baby

Rachel (Blaine):
Broadway Baby
Slaving at the five and ten (Oooo, Yeah)

Blaine (and Rachel):
(Dreaming of the great day when)
I'll be in a show (Rachel: Oh, Oh, Oh)
Hey, hey

Rachel (Blaine):
Oh, Broadway Baby (Broadway Baby)

Blaine and Rachel:
Making rounds all afternoon
Eating at a greasy spoon
To save on my dough

At my tiny flat there's just my cat
A bed and a chair
Still I'll stick it till
I'm on a bill

All over Times Square

All some day maybe

Blaine and Rachel:
If I stick it long enough
I may get to strut my stuff

Working for a nice man

Like a Ziegfeld or a Weissman

In a

Blaine and Rachel:
Great big Broadway show
