EVERY STREET'S A BOULEVARD (IN OLD NEW YORK) From the Broadway musical "Hazel Flagg" (1953) (Music: Jule Styne / Lyrics: Bob Hilliard) Jack Whiting (Broadway Production) - 1953 Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis (Feat. in the film "Living It Up") - 1954 Norrie Paramour & His Orch. - 1956 Eddie Heywood (Instr.) - 1963 Frankie Laine - 1966 Jule Styne - 1966 Guy Haines - 2001 All the streets in our fair city are one and the same So I leave it to you, what's in a name? Are the folks who live on a street like Eleventh Any finer than the family on a Hundred and Seventh? I settle each issue by telling the squawker If you live in New York be glad you're a New Yorker I tell you every street's a boulevard in old New York Every street's a highway of your dreams Why, it's a thrill to shop on Thirty-Fourth Street Or down in Union Square I like the people you meet on Mulberry Street Have you ever been there? Streets are lined with palaces in old New York It's a kingdom where the people wear the crown Just remember there's an East Side And a West Side, and Uptown and Down That's why I'm proud to be a part of New York town Streets are paved with happiness in old New York We're proud you're a part of it We're happy that you came Each sidewalk is a concrete path to fame Just remember there's the East Side And the West Side, and Uptown and Down In this great big metropolis known as New York town Every street's a boulevard in old New York So keep smiling and you'll never wear a frown Just remember there's the East Side And the West Side, and Uptown and Down That's why I'm proud to be the Mayor of your town Just remember there's the East Side And the West Side, and Uptown and Down That's why I'm proud to be the Mayor of your town I'm so proud to be the Mayor of your town ******************** As recorded by FRANKIE LAINE: I tell you every street's a boulevard in old New York Every street's a highway of your dreams Why, it's a thrill to shop on Thirty-Fourth Street Or down in Union Square I like the people you meet on Mulberry Street Say, have you ever been there? And I'm a-tellin' you every street's a boulevard in old New York So just keep a-smilin' and you'll never wear a frown So just remember there's the East Side The West Side, the Uptown and Down Oh yes, I'm proud to be a part of New York Town I tell you every street's a boulevard in old New York So just keep a-smilin' and you'll never, never wear a frown So just remember there's the East Side The West Side, the Uptown and Down Oh yes, I'm proud to be, really proud to be Oh yes, I'm proud to be in New York Town (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2017)
