Ella Fitzgerald

Summer journeys to Niag’ra
And to other places aggra-
Vate all our cares.
We’ll save our fares!

I’ve a cozy little flat in
What is known as Old Manhattan
We’ll settle down
Right here in town!

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 wonderous toy
Just made for a girl and boy.
We’ll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy!

We’ll go to Yonkers
Where true love conquers
In the whiles
And starve together dear in Childs

We’ll go to Coney
And eat baloney on a roll
In Central Park we’ll stroll
Where our first kiss we stole
Soul to soul

And My Fair Lady 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!
