Newsies – Finale lyrics

With the strike settled, I should probably be hittin' the road.

I don't get it. What's Santa Fe got that New York ain't?

Or better yet, what's New York got that Santa Fe ain't?

New York's got us, and we're family

And you've got one more ace up your sleeve

What would that be?

Me. Wherever you go, I'm there right by your side.

For sure?

For sure.

Don't take much to be a dreamer
All you do is close your eyes
But some made-up world is all you ever see
Now my eyes is finally open
And my dreams, they's average-size
But they don't much matter if you ain't with me

We'll all be out there
Carrying the banner man to man
We're always out there
Soakin' ev'ry sucker that we can
Here's the headline:
Newsies on a mission
Kill the competition
Sell the next edition
We'll be out there
Carrying the banner
See us out there
Carrying the banner
Always out there
Carrying the banner
Look at me!
I'm the king of New York!
I'm respectable
Starin' right at ya,
Lousy with stature!

Glory be!
I'm the king of New York!
Front page story
Guts and glory
I'm the king of New York!

    Alan Menken and Jack Feldman are musical geniuses. The whole beginning part up through ehen Katherine says "For sure," is spoken not sung. I love the mashup of "Santa Fe," "Carrying the Banner," and "King of New York." In a mostly male OBC (Original Broadway Cast) Kara Lindsay (Katherine) does an amazing job bringing her voice out. I would most definitely recommend seeing this musical on its first ever national tour. The actors, dancers, singers, and orchestra is amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed this Disney musical and its music composed by Alan Menken and given lyrics by Jack Feldman.
