King of New York Music by Alan Menken.
Lyrics by Jack Feldman.

MUSH:
A pair of new shoes with matchin' laces!



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!
