    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 Delancey Street, you know
    The subway charms us so
    When balmy breezes blow
    To and fro

    And tell me what street
    Compares with Mott Street
    In July
    Sweet pushcarts gently gliding by

    The great big city's a wondrous toy
    Just made for a girl and boy
    We'll turn Manhattan
    Into an isle of joy

    We'll go to Greenwich
    Where modern men itch
    To be free
    And Bowling Green you'll see
    With me

    We'll bathe at Brighton
    The fish you'll frighten
    When you're in
    Your bathing suit so thin
    Will make the shellfish grin
    Fin to fin

    I'd like to take a
    Sail on Jamaica Bay with you
    And fair Canarsie's lake
    We'll view

    The city's bustle cannot destroy
    The dreams of a girl and boy
    We'll turn Manhattan
    Into an isle of joy

    We'll go to Yonkers
    Where true love conquers
    In the wilds
    And starve together, dear
    In Childs'

    We'll go to Coney
    And eat baloney
    On a roll
    In Central Park we'll stroll
    Where our first kiss we stole
    Soul to soul

    Our future babies
    We'll take to "Abie's Irish Rose"
    I hope they'll live to see
    It close

    The city's clamor can never spoil
    The dreams of a boy and goil
    We'll turn Manhattan
    Into an isle of joy

    We'll have Manhattan
    The Bronx and Staten Island, too
    We'll try to cross Fifth Avenue
    As black as onyx

    We'll find the Bronnix Park Express
    Our Flatbush flat, I guess
    Will be a great success
    More or less

    A short vacation
    On Inspiration Point
    We'll spend
    And in the station house we'll end

    But civic virtue cannot destroy
    The dreams of a girl and boy
    We'll turn Manhattan
    Into an isle of joy
