MANHATTAN DOWNBEAT From the film "The Barkleys Of Broadway" (1949) (Harry Warren / Ira Gershwin) Fred Astaire - 1949 Tempo, you know that good old tempo: Just give me that Manhattan Downbeat That beats a tempo of its own; You've got to shout, "This is it!" The day you visit The jumpinest town has ever been known. Keep your Paree and London town beat Up with your 'bockers stands alone; Drive up any avenue, swing down any street, No beat has Manhattan Downbeat beat! Manhattan has a beat that's all its own, Manhattan has a beat to call its own. So, Mister Leader, when you give the band the downbeat, A one, two, three; And give 'em that Manhattan Downbeat That beats a tempo of its own; You've got to shout, "This is it!" The day you visit The jumpinest town has ever been known. Keep your Paree and London town beat Up with your 'bockers stands alone; Drive up any avenue, swing down any street, No beat has Manhattan Downbeat No beat has Manhattan Downbeat No beat has Manhattan Downbeat beat!
