On Broadway Lyrics

Artist: George Benson
Album: On Broadway

THEY SAY THE NEON LIGHTS ARE BRIGHT ON BROADWAY
THEY SAY THERE'S ALWAYS MAGIC IN THE AIR
BUT WHEN YOU'RE WALKIN' DOWN THE STREET
AND YOU AIN'T HAD ENOUGH TO EAT
THE GLITTER RUBS RIGHT OFF AND YOU'RE NOWHERE

THEY SAY THE WOMEN TREAT YOU FINE ON BROADWAY
BUT LOOKIN' AT THEM JUST GIVES ME THE BLUES
'CAUSE HOW YA GONNA MAKE SOME TIME
WHEN ALL YOU GOT IS ONE THIN DIME
AND ONE THIN DIME WON'T EVEN SHINE YOUR SHOES

THEY SAY THAT I WON'T LAST TOO LONG ON BROADWAY
I'LL CATCH A GREY HOUND BUS FOR HOME THEY ALL SAY
BUT THEY'RE DEAD WRONG I KNOW THEY ARE
'CAUSE I CAN PLAY THIS HERE GUITAR
AND I WON'T QUIT TILL I'M A STAR ON BROADWAY

who wrote this song?
by bandfreakbandgeek1371 on 8/1/2008 7:36pm
Played this for jazz army(my school's ensemble was 3x the size of a normal jazz ensemble so it was an army) and I had the bass line nearly all the way through. To this day, no matter the key, I can play that bass line.

Thanks. I kept hearing this song on the radio & not knowing where it came from. I'm going to sing this for auditions, and with a bit of luck (and practice) I'll get in!

Neil Young does a great cover
on the Freedom CD
by Roslyn on 2/20/2009 4:54pm
It's not by George Benson - It's by Lieber and Stoller (Hound Dog, etc) and was sung in 1963 by the Drifters. Benson's (very good) version was *much* later.

I love this song! Yeah here where I live the community is putting on Broadway Our Way. This is the first song they sing. Yeah actually I'm backstage help, which means I open and shut curtains, take a chair onstage (my big spotlight moment, lolz), and give Chance his shawl, and then last but not least, I make sure that while the kids are backstage that they stay quiet and that in itself is a pretty hard job considering there's probably 8 or 9 kids lolz.
