DiMaggio:
Hurry, hurry! Step right up!
See the star who lives for the spotlight.
Turn the mics and cameras on
Or she feels incomplete.
Now before it hits the screen
Watch us play the final scene
Right here
On Lexington and 52nd Street
Reporter:
It is chaos down here on 52nd and Lexington! The film star, Miss Marilyn Monroe, brings Hollywood to Manhattan as she films Billy Wilder's Seven Year Itch.
DiMaggio:
Hurry all you faceless men
And catch the end of the match of the century.
You're just in time for the final round
Cause I know when I'm beat.
See the girl who's become a joke
See the man whose heart she broke
Right here
On Lexington and 52nd Street
Instrumental (The crowd cheers and many call her name, vying for attention)
From Hollywood to Niagara Falls,
In barber shops on barroom walls,
The things I thought were only mine
Are up for grabs so get in line!
Hurry, hurry! Take a peek!
The traffic stops for the queen of the movies
The center fold, LIVE! In the flesh!
So get a ringside seat.
You wanna see what her husband sees?
Just wait for the next subway breeze,
Right here
On Lexington and 52nd street
Instrumental.
Marilyn:
Joe? Joe? Where's Joe? (Sigh) Joe?
DiMaggio:
Hurry, hurry. Going fast.
Watch the fool as he heads for the exit.
He sees what she has to have
And he cannot compete.
See the girl who's ten feet high
See the man who's learned to cry
Right here
On Lexington and 52nd...
