Manhattan Lyrics by Caetano Veloso

 

Manhattan by Caetano Veloso


We'll have Manhattan
The Bronx
And Staten Island too
It's lovely going through
The zoo
It's very fancy
On old Delancey Street
You know
The subway charms us so
When balmy breezes blow
To and fro
And tell me what street
Compares
With Mott Street
In July
Sweet pushcarts
Gently gliding by
The great big city's
A wondrous toy
Just made
For a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy
We'll go to Greenwich
Where modern men itch
To be free
And Bowling Green
You'll see
With me
We'll bathe at Brighton
The fish you'll frighten
When you're in
Your bathing suit so thin
Will make
The shellfish grin
Fin to fin
And South Pacific
Is a terrific
Show they say
We both may
See it close
Some day
The city's glamour
Can never spoil
The dreams
Of a boy and goil
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy
We'll have Manhattan
The Bronx
And Staten Island too
We'll try to cross
Fifth Avenue
As black as onyx
We'll find the bronix
Park express
Our flatbush flat
I guess will be
A great success
More or less
A short vacation
On inspiration
Point we'll spend
And in
The station house
We'll end
But civic virtue
Cannot destroy
The dreams
Of a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy
