Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Rodgers and Hart Songbook (1956)

Summer journeys to Niag’ra
and to other places aggra-
vate all our cares.
We’ll save our fares!

I’ve a cozy little flat in
what is known as old Manhattan
we’ll settle down
right here in town!

We’ll have Manhattan
the Bronx and Staten
Island too.
It’s lovely going through
the zoo!

It’s very fancy
on old Delancy
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 gli-ding by.

The great big city’s a wonderous toy
just made for a girl and boy.
We’ll turn Manhattan
into an isle of joy!

We’ll go to Yonkers
Where true love conquers
In the whiles
And starve together dear, in Chiles

We’ll go to Coney
And eat baloney on a roll
In Central Park we’ll stroll
Where our first kiss we stole
Soul to soul

And “My Fair Lady” is a terrific show they say
We both may see it close, some day

The city’s glamour can never spoil
The dreams of a boy and goil
We’ll turn Manhattan
into an isle of joy!

“Manhattan” is part of the Great American Songbook. It has been performed by the Supremes, Lee Wiley, Oscar Peterson, Blossom Dearie, Tony Martin, Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald and Mel Torme, among many others. It is often known as “We’ll Have Manhattan” based on the opening line. Here is my version in memory of Sunday Morning roasts when I was in my teens listening to Ella’s mellifluous tones as the Yorkshires went in! Music&tab from [email protected]

“Manhattan” is part of the Great American Songbook. It has been performed by The Supremes, Lee Wiley, Oscar Peterson, Blossom Dearie, Tony Martin, Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald and Mel Torme, among many others. It is often known as “We’ll Have Manhattan” based on the opening line. The music was written by Richard Rodgers and the words by Lorenz Hart for the 1925 revue “Garrick Gaieties”. It was introduced by Sterling Holloway (later the voice of the animated Winnie the Pooh) and June Cochran.
The song appears to describe, in several choruses, the simple delights of Manhattan for a young couple in love who are blissfully unaware of their surroundings. The joke is that these ‘delights’ are really some of the worst, or at best cheap, delights that New York has to offer; for example, the stifling, humid stench of the subway in summertime is described as “balmy breezes,” while the noisy, grating pushcarts on Mott Street are “gently gliding by.” A particular Hart delight is the rhyming “spoil” with “boy and goyl”…….
