They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway
They say there's always magic in the air
When you're walkin' down that street
And you ain't had enough to eat
The glitter rubs right off and you're nowhere, nowhere
(On Broadway)

They say the girls are somethin' else on Broadway
(On Broadway)
But lookin' at them just gives me the blues
'Cause how ya gonna make some time
When all that you got is one thin dime
And one thin dime, that won't even shine your filthy shoes
(On Broadway)

They say that I won't last too long on Broadway
(On Broadway)
I'll catch a Greyhound bus for home, they all say
But, oh, they're wrong, I know they are
'Cause I can play this here, guitar
I won't quit till I'm a star on Broadway
(On Broadway)

But oh, they're wrong, I know they are
But I can play this here, guitar
And I won't quit till I'm a star on Broadway
Oh, on Broadway
(On Broadway)

Never gonna quit, never gonna quit my thing
Till I make it on Broadway
(On Broadway)
I'll be a big man, yeah
You're gonna know my name
(On Broadway)

All up and down Broadway
Yeah, up and down Broadway
(On Broadway)
Dirty, filthy Broadway
Break your heart on Broadway
(On Broadway)

Everybody gonna know my name
(Walk, walk, walk on by)
Walk, walk
Walk, walk, walk on by
Walk, walk
Walk, walk, walk on by
