Friday Morning Sing-A-Long: Blogger's "On The Town"

JUSTROSE:
Come on, everyone, hurry up!

PAX:
Twenty-four hours!

MAGS (dressed up as a “working girl”):
Hey, why don't ya look where you're goin'.
You'd think it was your first time in New York!

JUSTROSE:
It is!

(The bloggers look around them, happily absorbing the scene.)

JUSTROSE, PAX, FRANK, VIRGINIA GAL, LOST, MAIDINK, ROWAN, JIMMI, MERCI:
New York, New York!
It's a helluva town!

JUSTROSE:
We've got one day here and not another minute
To see the famous sights!

TAZZY, PIGGY, FRANK, PAX:
We'll find the romance and danger waiting in it
Beneath the Broadway lights;
But we've hair on our chests
So what we like the best are the nights
Sights! Lights! Nights!

LOST, VG, MERCI & ROWAN:
New York, New York, a helluva town.
The Bronx is up, but the Battery's down.
The people ride in a hole in the groun'.
New York, New York, it's a helluva town!

PIGGY:
(points to Empire State Building)
Hey, Tazzy,Tazzy -look.

(consulting his guidebook with reverence and excitement)

PIGGY:
it says here "There are 20,000 streets in New York,
not counting MacDougal Alley the heart of Green-Witch Village,
a charming thoroughfare filled with..."

PAX:
Here we go again!

FRANK:
The famous places to visit are so many,

ROWAN:
Or so the guidebooks say.

VG:
I promised Daddy I wouldn't miss on any.

MAIDINK:
And we have just one day.

LOST:
Got to see the whole town

MERCI:
From Yonkers on down to the Bay.

JIMMI:
In just one day!

EVERYONE:
New York, New York, a visitor's place,
Where no one lives on account of the pace,
But seven millions are screaming for space.
New York, New York, it's a visitor's place!

(Two bloggers enter, weaving and weary-looking -
one happy, one very glum.)

PAX:
Hey! Look who's comin' back! It's Snicks and Tony!

FRANK:
Hey, Snicks, Tony! Hey, fellas, how was that Magnolia dame?

TONY:
Wonderful - I don't remember a thing!

SNICKS:
Awful! I remember everything!


PAX:
Manhattan women are dressed in silk and satin,
Or so the fellas say;
There's just one thing that's important in Manhattan,
When you have just one day;
Gotta pick up a date...

FRANK:
Maybe seven...

PAX:
Or eight
On your way.
In just one day!

EVERYONE:
New York, New York, a helluva town.
The Bronx is up, but the Battery's down.
The people ride in a hole in the groun'.
New York, New York, it's a helluva town!!
