With the strike settled, I'd best be hittin' the road.
I don't get it. What's Santa Fe got that New York ain't?
Or better yet, what's New York got that Santa Fe ain't?
New Yorks got us, and we're family!
And, you've got one more ace up your sleeve.
And what would that be?
Me. Wherever you go, I'm there, right by your side.
Don't take much to be a dreamer, all you do is close your eyes!
But some made up world is all you ever see.
Well my eyes is finally open, and my dreams they've averaged-size
but they don't much matter if you ain't with me.
We'll all be out there, carrying the banner man to man!
We're always out there, soakin' every sucker that we can!
Here's a headline, newsies on a mission
Kill the competition
sell the next addition
We'll be out there Carrying the banner
see us out there, carrying the banner
Always out there carrying the banner!
Look at me! I'm the king of New York!
Suddenly, I'm respectable staring right at ya lousy with stature
Glory me! I'm the king of New York!
Front page story, guts and glory, I'm the king
Of New York!
