Only in New York Lyrics

Broadway production (2002)
Thoroughly Modern Millie the Musical - Only in New York Lyrics

MUZZY
THE WONDERS OF THE WORLD

ARE SAID TO STOP AT SEVEN
BUT TRUTH TO TELL
MY FIGURES DON’T AGREE
I NUMBER THEM AT EIGHT
WITH ONE SO CLOSE TO HEAVEN
THE OTHERS PALE
THEIR MAGIC STALE
JUST TAKE A LOOK AND SEE

STEP RIGHT UP TO TREASURE ISLE
EV’RY INCH OF IT
A SKY-HIGH MILE
FAIRYTALE LAND
ONLY IN NEW YORK

HEY CASTLE-BUILDER
WANT THE MOON
AND NOTHING LESS?
WORK FOR YEARS
THEN OVERNIGHT SUCCESS
I KNOW FIRST HAND
ONLY IN NEW YORK

EACH DAY IT’S FREE ADMISSION
TO THOSE WHO DREAM
YOU SET YOUR SIGHTS ALL THE WAY UPSTREAM
OFF YOU GO
FOR YOU KNOW

THAT CREAM WILL RISE

MAKE THAT WISH
SEEK THAT THRILL
COME AND GET IT
‘CAUSE YOU ALWAYS WILL
STRIKE UP THE BAND
ONLY IN NEW YORK

EACH DAY IT’S FREE ADMISSION

TO THOSE WHO DREAM
YOU SET YOUR SIGHTS ALL THE WAY UPSTREAM
OFF YOU GO
FOR YOU KNOW
THAT CREAM WILL RISE
RISE!

NEW, IMPROVES AND REARRANGED
IT’S EVER-CHANGING
YET IT’S NEVER CHANGED
LIFE ON COMMAND!

HEAR WHAT I’M SAYING
OH, BUT IT’S GRAND!
THAT’S WHY I’M STAYING RIGHT HERE AS PLANNED
ONLY IN NEW YORK
ONLY IN NEW YORK
ONLY IN NEW YORK!

[Thanks to Darci Faye for lyrics]
