    "On Broadway" Lyrics

    Jimmy Scott

    They say the neon lights are bright
    On Broadway
    They say there's always magic in the air
    But when you're walkin' down that street
    And you ain't have enough to eat
    The glitter rubs right off and you're nowhere

    They say the women treat you fine
    On Broadway
    But lookin' at them just gives me the blues
    How ya gonna make some time
    When all you got is one thin dime

    And one thin dime won't even shine your shoes

    They say that I won't last too long
    On Broadway
    I'll catch a Greyhound bus for home they all say
    But they get wrong, I know they are
    'Cause I can play this here guitar

    I won't quit till I'm a star
    On Broadway
    On Broadway
    On Broadway
