Wikipedia has an article on
We'll have Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island too
It's lovely going through the zoo
It's very fancy on old Delaney Street, you know
The subway charms us so when balmy breezes blow to and fro

And tell me what street compares with Mott Street in July
Sweet pushcarts gently gliding by
The great big city's a wondrous toy made for a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan into an isle of joy

We'll go to Greenwich
Where modern men itch to be free
And Bowling Green you'll see with me

We'll bathe at Brighton, the fish I'll frighten
When I'm in my bathing suit so thin
Will make the shellfish grin fin to fin

I'd like to take a sail on Jamaica Bay with you
And fair Canarsie's Lake we'll view
The city's bustle cannot destroy
The dreams of a girl and boy
We'll turn Manhattan into an isle of joy
