I'm sorry show business isn't for me, I'm goin' back to Allentown
What was that word you've just said, Allentown?
I'm offering you a chance to star in the biggest musical
Broadway's seen in twenty years and you say, Allentown?

Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Broadway
The hip hooray and bally hoo
The lullaby of Broadway

The rumble of the subway train
The rattle of the taxis
The daffy-dills who entertain
At Angelo's and Maxie's

When a Broadway baby says, "Good night"
It's early in the morning
Manhattan babies don't sleep tight
Until the dawn

Good night, baby
Good night, milkman's on his way
Sleep tight, baby
Sleep tight, let's call it a day
Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway

Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Broadway

The hidee hi and boop dee doo
The lullaby of Broadway
The band begins to go to town
And ev'ryone goes crazy
You rock-a-bye your baby 'round
'Til ev'rything gets hazy

Hush-a-bye, "I'll buy you this and that"
You hear a daddy sayin'
And baby goes home to her flat
To sleep all day

Good night, baby
Good night, milkman's on his way
Sleep tight, baby
Sleep tight, let's call it a day
Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway

Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Broadway
The hip hooray and bally hoo
The lullaby of Broadway

The rumble of the subway train
The rattle of the taxis
The daffy-dills who entertain
Until the dawn

Good night, baby
Good night, milkman's on his way
I'll do it!

Come on along
Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Broadway
The hidee hi and boop dee doo
The lullaby of Broadway

The band begins to go to town
And ev'ryone goes crazy
You rock-a-bye your baby 'round
And sleep all day
Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway
