BROADWAY BABY From the Broadway Musical "Follies" (1971) (Stephen Sondheim) I'm just a Broadway Baby, Walking off my tired feet, Pounding Forty Second Street To be in a show. Broadway Baby, Learning how to sing and dance, Waiting for that one big chance To be in a show. Gee, I'd like to be on some marquee, All twinkling lights, A spark to pierce the dark From Batt'ry Park to Washington Heights. Some day maybe, All my dreams will be repaid. I can get to strut my stuff, Working for a nice man Like a Ziegfeld or a Weissman In a big-time Broadway show! Heck, I'd even play the maid To be in a show. Say, Mister producer, Some girls get the breaks. Just give me my cue, sir. I've got what it takes. Say, Mister Producer, I'm talkin' to you, sir. I don't need a lot, Only what I got, Plus a tube of greasepaint and a follow spot! I'm a Broadway Baby, Slaving at the five and ten, Dreaming of the great day When I'll be in a show. Broadway Baby, Making rounds all afternoon, Eating at a greasy spoon To save on my dough. At my tiny flat there's just my cat, A bed and a chair. Still I'll stick it till I'm on a bill all over Times Square. Some day maybe, If I stick it long enough, I can get to strut my stuff, Work-ing for a nice man Like a Ziegfeld or a Weissman In a big-time Broadway show! Heck, I'd even play the maid To be in a show. Say, Mister producer, Some girls get the breaks. Just give me my cue, sir. I've got what it takes. Say, Mister Producer, I'm talkin' to you, sir. I don't need a lot, Only what I got, Plus a tube of greasepaint and a follow spot!
