We're On Our Way lyrics

We're On Our Way

[Steward]
Poughkeepsie! This landing is Poughkeepsie.
The Hudson River Day Line is here for 15 minutes only.
See the steward about renting megaphones for the big boat race.

[Chorus]
The simple life for us
We've come aboard this bus
To swap a pitiful city
Full of fashion and fuss.
For that little town
Of fairy tale renown,
That Mr. Rip chose to choose
For his twenty-year snooze!

Every time that whistle blows today,
It seems as though it tries to say
Oh, fair Manhattan isle
Silk-an'-satin-isle,
Good-bye, we're on our way.

No more large nights for me
Absorbing cocktails and cherries
At Maxim's and Sherry's.
No more high flights for me,
My dates are cancelled and called off

At Del's and the Waldorf
Good-bye, Fifth Avenue,
Broadway, I've news for you
They're going to lock you up,
So they say.
Oh, what a chance,
While we're away,
On with the dance.
