OH SAY CAN YOU SEE (WHAT I SEE) (Sigmund Romberg / Dorothy Fields) Deanna Durbin 1948 Transcribed from film Up In Central Park 1948 From the Broadway Musical & book Up In Central Park 1945 Director: William A. Seiter Leads: Deanna Durbin/Dick Hames/Vincent Price Was originally supposed to shoot in Technicolor but cancelled due lack of money. It's a nice little spot Over here that you've got As I stand on the boat With a lump in my throat And I see the big city I just feel so proud I'm liable to bust. So I'm thinkin' I'm likin' to stay In the U and the S and the A. Oh say can you see what I see If this is America this is for me Opportunity knocks 'til it breaks down the doors And the fortune said take me I'm yours. Then they hand you your prize, a graying bull And throw in a good lookin' husband for free It seems like a fairy land out of the sky With ten dollar gold pieces baked in your pie The taxes are low and the wages are high What a wonderful place it must be I certainly like what I see. (bridge - dancing) Oh say can you see what I see If this is America, this is for me It's a great land of plenty And plenty is what At the moment this girl has a guy. As I look at New York, the small XXXX I'll lock up my troubles and swallow the key The folks look so rosy and healthy and gay The Democrats tell you they all get that way From eating Republicans three times a day What a wonderful place it must be I certainly like what I see. (Transcribed by David Story - June 2013)
