Sweet Manhattan Melody
Colin Buckley (C) 2003


New Yorker's drifting down Park Avenue
July blowing in the breeze
Bebop and bagel with your mornin' brew
Sweet Manhattan melody

Soft shoe shuffle at the shoe shine stand
Street sweeper singing harmony
Traffic cop waving like a one man band
Sweet Manhattan melody

I love to walk on Broadway late at night
That's when all the stars begin to shine
Blue horn wailin' til the early light
Blowin' "Georgia On My Mind"

Sky scraper reaching for the morning sun
Cab driver searching for a fee
Yes sir the city rhythm has begun
Sweet Manhattan melody

I love to walk on Broadway late at night
That's when all the stars begin to shine
Blue horn wailin' til the early light
Blowin' "Georgia On My Mind"

When I see the harbour lights I know I'll find
The "Torch Lady" waiting there for me
Feel it tearing at this heart of mine
Sweet Manhattan melody
Sweet Manhattan melody
