Manhattan
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor

(Verse 1):
Well we're not like other places, just for starters
So we can clear that up right off'a the bat
Hey all you farmers better hide your daughters
Before they discover where the actions at
Cuz we got charms that'll drive 'em silly
We got romance and danger and fun
We got knish, and curry and chili
Don't get me started man, I just begun

(Chorus):
Manhattan - where dreams come true
Manhattan - this is my love song to you

(Verse 2):
We got designers and diners and corner bodegas
Cafes and soirees and Broadway shows
What happens in Vegas can stay in Vegas
What happens here man the whole world knows
We got pubs and bars that are divey and seedy
We get everything delivered and I guess you knew
We got elegance and glamor and glitz and greedy
Yea, if you want, you can find that, too, .. in -

(Chorus):
Manhattan - where dreams come true
Manhattan - this is my love song to you

(Bridge):
Billy Joel wrote a good one
Cole Porter did too
So did Ellington and Gershwin
Woody Allen wrote quite a few
So if you're ready to take the A train
Please allow me to
Add my ditty
To New York City
This is my love song to you

(Verse 3):
So come and visit and bring your honey
Maybe you can take a walk in the park
Don't bring the kids, but bring some money
Don't be afraid to take it out after dark
But if you think you seen it all buddy better be wary
We've seen better and we've seen worse
Cuz nothing's surprising or shocking or scary
Here in the center of the universe

(Chorus):
Manhattan - where dreams come true
Manhattan - this is my love song to you
Manhattan - where dreams come true
Manhattan - this is my love song to you
