    Manhattan-I'm up a tree
    The one I've most adored
    Is bored
    With me.
    Manhattan, I'm awf'lly nice,
    Nice people dine with me,
    And even twice.
    Yet the only one in the world I'm mad about
    Talks of somebody else
    And walks out.

    With a million neon rainbows burning below me
    And a million blazing taxis raising a roar
    Here I sit, above the town
    In my pet pailletted gown
    Down in the depths on the ninetieth floor.
    While the crowds at El Morocco punish the parquet
    And at '21' the couples clamor for more**
    I'm deserted and depressed
    In my regal eagle nest
    Down in the depths on the ninetieth floor.
    When the only one you wanted wants another
    What's the use of swank and cash in the bank galore?
    Why, even the janitor's wife
    Has a perfectly good love life
    And here am I
    Facing tomorrow
    Alone with my sorrow
    Down in the depths on the ninetieth floor.
