Manhattan
Blossom Dearie Lyrics


I'll take Manhattan
The Bronx and Staten Island too
It's lovely going through
The zoo

It's very fancy
On old Delancy 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
Made for a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy

Tell me what street
Compares with Mott Street in July?
Sweet pushcarts gently
Gliding by

The great big city's a wondrous toy
Made for a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy

I'll take Manhattan
I'll take Manhattan

As in Tea For Two (same album) the tempo in Manhattan is just lovely at its slow, clear-lyric pace. So hard to pull off without sounding as if you're dragging. Dear, dear Blossom! Arlene Corwin

Thanks a million, Vlad! Blossom playing her own piano accompaniment, I think? That phrasing beginning at 2.38 is particularly sublime! What diction throughout too.
