America (movie lyrics) Lyrics

America (movie lyrics) by West Side Story  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


America (movie lyrics) Puerto Rico my hearts devotion
let it sink back in the ocean
Always the hurricanes
Always the population growing

And the money owing
And the sun light streaming
And the native steaming
I like the island Manhattan
Smoke on your pipe and put that in

I like to be in America
Ok by me in America
Everything free in America
For a small fee in America

Buying on credit is so nice
One look at us and they charge twice
I have my own washing machine
What will you have, though, to keep clean?

Skyscrapers bloom in America
Cadillacs zoom in America
Industry boom in America
Twelve in a room in America

Lots of new housing with more space
Lots of doors slamming in our face
I’ll get a terrace apartment
Better get rid of your accent

Life can be bright in America
If you can fight in America
Life is alright in America
If you’re all white in America

Lala, lala, lala América
Noc, noc América
Lala, lala, lala América
Noc, noc América

Here you are free and you have pride
Long as you stay on your own side
Free to be anything you choose
Free wait tables and shine shoes

Everywhere grime in America
Organized crime in America
Terrible time in America
You forget I’m in America

I think I go back to san jaunt
I know a boat you can get on (bye bye)
Everyone there will give big cheer
Everyone there will have moved here

(dance)

go go go go

(dance)

(claps)

(dance)

ole
