Broadway Baby

“People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.”
     — George Carlin

I’m just a
Broadway baby
Walking off my tired feet
Pounding Forty-Second Street
To be in a show

Broadway baby,
Learning how to sing and dance,
Waiting for that great big chance
To be in a show

I’d like to be
On some marquee
All twinkling lights
A spark
To pierce the dark
From Battery Park
Way up to Washington Heights

Someday maybe
All my dreams will be repaid
Heck, I’d even play the maid
To be in a show

Hey, Mr. Producer
I’m talking to you, sir
I don’t need a lot
Only what I got
Plus a tube of greasepaint
And a follow-spot

I’m just a Broadway baby
Slaving at the five-and-ten
Dreaming of the great day when
I’ll be in a show
Broadway baby
Making rounds all afternoon
Eating at a greasy spoon
To save on my dough

At my tiny flat
There’s just my cat
A bed and a chair
I’ll stick it til
I’m on a bill
All over Times Square

Someday, maybe,
If I stick it long enough,
I may get to strut my stuff
Working for a nice man
Like a Ziegfeld or a Weismann
In a great big
Broadway show!

“Broadway Baby,” from Follies
