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

They say the girls are something else, on Broadway
(On Broadway)
But looking at them just gives me the blues
(On Broadway)
But how're ya gonna make some time
When all you got is one thin dime?
And one thin dime won't even shine your 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
(On Broadway)
But oh, yeah they're wrong, I know they are
'Cause I can play this here guitar
And I won't quit till I'm a star on Broadway
(On Broadway)

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

On Broadway
(On Broadway)
I'm gonna make it, yeah
(On Broadway)
I'll be a big, big, big man
(On Broadway)
I'll have my name in lights
(On Broadway)
Everybody, everybody's gonna know me, yeah
(On Broadway)
Ohh, up and down Broadway
(On Broadway)
Ohh
