On The Twentieth Century Lyrics

 

On The Twentieth Century Song Lyrics


Music: Cy Coleman
Lyrics: Betty Comden + Adolph Green
Book: Betty Comden + Adolph Green
Premiere: Sunday, February 19, 1978

Saddle up the horse without delay
Ship ahoy, we sail at break of day
Ours not to question
Ours not to reason
Ours to obey!

Let down the drawbridge
While you keep the motor racing
Maybe we'll have to swim the river
Working for Jaffee, though continually crazy,
Also destroys the heart and liver

What's new today
We're gonna sneak away
To a shower of rotten eggs
With our tails between our legs
On the Twentieth Century, the Twentieth Century
In Drawing Room A!
Hey! Hey! Hey!

We point with the deepest pride
To the grandest ride
On the New York Central Railroad

Or else N.Y. to Chi
New York in sixteen hours
Anything can happen in those sixteen hours
As the flight all across the night
America the beautiful was high
America the beautiful was high

On the Twentieth Century
On the Twentieth Century
On the Twentieth Century
On the Twentieth Century
On the luxury liner between N.Y. and Chi

Life and love and luck
May be changed
Hope renewed (renewed)
And fate rearranged

On the Twentieth Century
On the Twentieth Century
On the Twentieth Century
On the Twentieth Century
On the luxury liner between N.Y. and Chi

Life and love and luck
May be changed
Hope renewed
And fate rearranged

On the Twentieth Century
On the Twentieth Century
On the Twentieth Century
On the Twentieth Century
On the luxury liner between N.Y. and Chi
