Gary Numan – On Broadway lyrics

They say that
Neon lights are bright on broadway
They say there's always magic in the air
But when you're walking down the street
And you aint had enough to eat
The city all lights up and you're nowhere

They say
The girls are something else on broadway
Looking at them just gives me the blues
Cause howre you gonna make some time
When all you got is one thin dime
And one thin dime wont even shine your shoes

They say that
Love wont last too long on broadway
Now catch a greyhound bus for home
They all say
I bet they're wrong, I know they are
Cause I can play this here guitar
And I wont quit till I'm a star
On broadway
