Manhattan  Ella Fitzgerald

[D]Summer [F#m7]journeys[Bm7] to Ni[A7]ag'ra a[D]nd to [A7]other p[G/B]laces [A7]aggra[F#m7]vate all our [Bm7-5]cares;

We'll s[Em7]ave our fa[A7-9]res.

[D]I've a [F#m7]cozy l[Bm7]ittle fl[A7]at in w[D]hat is k[A7]nown as [G/B]old Manh[A7]attan;
[C9]We'll settle d[B9]own [Bb9]right h[Em7]ere in [A7-9]town.
Melody:


[D]We'll have Ma[Fdim]nhattan,[Em7]   the Bronx and [A7/6]Staten I[D9]sland, too;
It's l[Fdim]ovely [Em7]going t[A7]hrough [A7+5]the zo[D]o.[Fdim]      [Em7]     [A7]
[D]It's very [Fdim]fancy[Em7]    on old De[A7/6]lancy St[Bm7]reet, you know;
[G7]The [F#7]subw[F7]ay ch[E7]arms us [F7]so  [E7]  when balmy b[A7]reezes blow [G/B]to and [A7]fro.
[D]And[Am7] tell me [B7]what street[Em7]   compares with [A7/6]Mott Sreet[DM7] in July?
[F3m7]Sweet p[Fdim]ushcarts [Em7]gently [G/B]gli - [A7+5]ding [F#m7]by.
[B7]The [Fdim]great [B7]big [Em7]city's a [G/B]wond'rous[Gdim] toy [Edim]    just [F#m]made for a [Bm7]girl and [E9]boy.
[D]We'll turn Ma[Fdim]nhattan [Em7]into an [A7/6]isle [A7-9] of  j[D6]oy.  [Fdim]       [Em7]      [A7]
We'll go to Yonkers, where true love conquers in the wilds,
And starve together, Dear, in Childs'.
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 someday.
The city's clamour can never spoil the dreams of a boy and goil;

[D]We'll turn Ma[Fdim]nhattan [Em7]into an [A7/6]isle [A7-9] of  j[D6]oy. [Fdim]      [Em7]     [A7-9]      [D6]
