We'll live in the swellest mansion
Up on upper 5th avenue
And through Harlem we'll go struttin', we'll go struttin'
And there'll be nothin' too good for you
You'll dress me in silks and satins
In the latest Paris styles
And all your blues you'll be forgettin'
You'll be forgettin
There'll be no frettin'
Just nothing but smiles

There's a boat that's leaving soon for New York
Come with me
That's where we belong, baby
You and me can live that high life in New York
Come with me
There we can't go wrong, baby

We'll live in the swellest mansion
Up on upper 5th avenue
Through Harlem we'll go struttin', we'll go struttin'
And there'll be nothin' too good for you
You'll dress me in silks and satins
In the latest Paris styles
All your blues you'll be forgettin'
You'll be forgettin'
There'll be no frettin'
Just nothing but smiles

There's a boat that's leaving soon for New York
Come with me
That's where we belong
That's where we belong
That's where we belong
That's where we belong
I mean that's where we belong
