On Broadway

On Broadway
They say the neon lights are bright
on Broadway (on Broadway)
They say there’s always magic in the air
(on Broadway)
But when you’re walkin’ down the street
And you ain’t had enough to eat
The glitter rubs right off and you’re nowhere
(on Broadway)

They say the girls are something else
on Broadway (on Broadway)
But looking at them just gives me the blues
(on Broadway)
‘Cause how you gonna make some time
When all you got is one thin dime
And one thin dime won’t even shine your shoes
(on Broadway)

Ha! They say that I won’t last too long
on Broadway (on Broadway)
I’ll catch a Greyhound bus for home, they all say
(on Broadway)
But Oh! They’re dead wrong,
I know they are
‘Cause I can play this here guitar
And I won’t quit ’til I’m a star
on Broadway (on Broadway)

(alternate ending)

I’m gonna make it, yeah (on Broadway)
I’ll be a big, big, big man (on Broadway)
I’ll have my name in lights (on Broadway)
Everybody, everybody’s gonna know me, yes (on Broadway)
All up and down Broadway (on Broadway)
