King of New York.

Interprétée par Max Casella et les crieurs.

A pair of new shoes with matching laces.
A permanent box at sheep shed races.
A porcelain tub with boiling water
A Saturday night with the mayor’s daughter.
Look at me.
I’m the king of New York.

I’m respectable.
Staring right atcha.
Lousy with stature.

Nubbin’ with all the muckety-mucks.
I’m blowin’ my dough and goin’ deluxe.
And there I’ll be.
Ain’t I pretty ?
It’s my city.
I’m the king of New York.

A corduroy suit with fitted knickers.
mezzanine seat to see the flickers.
Havana cigars that cost a quarter.
An editor’s desk for our star reporter.
Tip your hat.
He’s the king of New York.

How ’bout that ?
I’m the king of New York.
Ain’t nothing flat.
He’ll be covering.
Brooklyn to Trenton.
Our man Denton.
Making a headline out of a hunch.
Protecting the weak.
And paying for lunch.
When I’m at bat..
Strong men crumble.
Proud yet humble.

I’m/he’s the king of New York.
I gotta be either dead or dreaming.
‘Cause look at that pape with my face beaming.
Tomorrow they may wrap fishes in it.
But I was a star for one whole minute.
Starting now.
I’m the king of New York.

Ain’t you heard ?
I’m the king of New York.
Holy cow.
It’s a miracle.
Pulitzer’s crying.
Weasel ? He’s dying.
Flashpots are shooting bright as the sun.
I’m one highfalutin’ sonuva gun.

Don’t ask me how.
Fortune found me.
Fate just crowned me.
Now I’m king of New York.
Look and see.
Once a piker.
Now a striker.
I’m the king of New York.

Front page story.
Guts and glory.
I’m the king of New York.
