I'll take New York

Music & Lyrics: Tom Waits
I'll tip the newsboy
I'll get a shine
I'll ride this dream
to the end of the line
I'm going places
I'll take a ride
Up to the Riverside
I'll take NY
I'll let it happen
I'll pop the cork
tear off the wrappin'
I'll make splash on the Hudson
that's how I will arrive
Hey, do you have two cents for a five?
Roll out the carpet
Strike up the band
break into the best
champagne when I land
Beat the Parade drum
hit all the bars
I want the moon and starts
But I'll take NY
I'll make it happen
Blow out the candles
tear off the wrappin
And I know someday
they'll have to name a street after me
right next door to old Franklin D
