King of New York Lyrics

 

King of New York Song Lyrics


MUSH:
A pair of new shoes with matchin' laces! Stupid old bunches.
RACETRACK:
A permanent box at Sheepshead races!
SPOT CONLON:
A porcelain tub with boilin' water!
KID BLINK:
A Saturday night with the mayor's daughter!
RACETRACK:
Look at me
I'm the king of New York
Suddenly
I'm respectable
Starin' right at 'cha
Lousy with stature
JACK:
Nobbin' with all the muckety-mucks
I'm blowin' my dough and goin' deluxe
RACETRACK:
And there I be
Ain't I pretty?
RACETRACK and JACK:
It's my city
I'm the king of New York!
BOOTS:
A corduroy suit with fitted knickers
LES:
A mezzanine seat to see the flickers
SNIPESHOOTER:
Havana cigars that cost a quarter
DAVID:
An editor's desk for the star reporter
NEWSIES:
Tip your hat
He's the king of New York
DENTON:
How 'bout that!
I'm the king of New York
NEWSIES:
In nothing flat
He'll be covering
Brooklyn to Trenton
Our man Denton
KID BLINK:
Makin' a headline out of a hunch
DENTON:
Protecting the weak
RACETRACK:
And payin' for lunch
DENTON:
When I'm at bat
Strong men crumble
RACETRACK:
Proud yet humble
RACETRACK and DENTON:
I'm (He's) the king of New York
ALL:
I gotta be either dead or dreamin'
'Cause look at that pape with my face beamin'
Tomorrow they may wrap fishes in it
But I was a star for one whole minute
Startin' now
I'm the king of New York
DENTON:
Ain't ya heard?
I'm the king of New York
ALL:
Holy cow
It's miracle
Pulitzer's cryin'
Weasel, he's dyin'
Flashpots are shootin' bright as the sun
I'm one highfalutin' son-of-a-gun
Don't ask me how
Fortune found me
Fate just crowned me
Now I'm king of New York
Look and see
Once a piker
Now a striker
I'm the king of New York
Victory!
Front page story
Guts and glory
I'm the king of New York!
