Taxi Number: Come Up to My Place Lyrics


by . From On the Town.


CHIP:
My father told me, "Chip, my boy,
There'll come a time when you leave home;
If you should ever hit New York,
Be sure to see the Hippodrome."

HILDY:
The Hippodrome?

CHIP:
The Hippodrome.

HILDY:
Did I hear right?
Did you say the Hippodrome?

CHIP:
Yes, you heard right.
Yes, I said the Hip-

(Hildy brakes.)

Hey what did you stop for?

HILDY:
It ain't there anymore.
Aida sang an "A"
And blew the place away!

CHIP:
Aw, I wanted to see the Hippodrome!

HILDY:
Give me a chance, kid;
I may not have 5,000 seats but the one I have is a honey!
Come up to my place.

CHIP:
Oh no, lady; the Forrest The-a-tre.

When I was home I saw the plays
The Ladies Drama Circle showed.
Now I am here, I want to get
Some tickets for "Tobacco Road."

HILDY:
"Tobacco Road?"

CHIP:
"Tobacco Road?"

HILDY:
Did I dig that?
Did you say "Tobacco Road"?

CHIP:
Yes, you dug that,
Yes, I said "Tobac-"

(Hildy brakes again.)

Hey what for did you stop?

HILDY:
That show has closed up shop.
The actors washed their feet
And called it "Angel Street."

CHIP:
Aw, I wanted to see "Tobacco Road."

HILDY:
Stick with me, kid, and I'll show you the road to ruin.
Come up to my place.

CHIP:
Oh no, Battery Park.

Back home I dreamt of catching fish
So big I couldn't carry 'em.
They told me that they have my size
Right here in the Aquarium.

HILDY:
Aquarium?

CHIP:
Aquarium.

HILDY:
Hold the phone, Joe?
Did you say Aquarium?

CHIP:
I'm still ringing;
But I said Aquar-

(She brakes again.)

Did you stop for what, hey?

HILDY:
The fish have flown away;
They're in the Bronx instead,
They might as well be dead!
Come up to my place.

CHIP:
No, Chambers Street.

They told me I could see New York
In all its spreading strength and power
From the city's highest spot,
Atop the famous Woolworth Tower.

HILDY:
The Woolworth Tower?

CHIP:
The Woolworth Tower.

HILDY:
Beat me, Daddy,
Did you say the Woolworth Tower?

CHIP:
I won't beat you,
But I said the Wool-

(Hildy brakes again.)

Did you stop for hey what?

HILDY:
That ain't the highest spot.
You're just a little late,
We got the Empire State!
Let's go to my place!

CHIP:
Let's go to Cleopatra's Needle.
Let's see Wanamaker's Store.
Let's go to Lindy's, go to Luchow's;
Let's see Radio City and Herald Square.
Go to Reuben's! Go to Macy's!
To the Roxy! Cloisters! Gimbel's!
Flatiron Building! Hippodrome!!

HILDY:
My place!!!

Hildy's boss joins the chase as he summons the police to recover his cab.
"She's studying painting at the museum," Miss Turnstiles' poster had read - but Ozzie's at the wrong one, the Museum of Natural History, on Central Park West. There he meets not Ivy smith but Claire de Loone, an anthropologist fascinated by Ozzie's resemblance to pithecanthropus erectus. She and Ozzie discover that they are kindred spirits.
