Refrain: Come and meet those dancing feet
On the avenue I’m taking you to Forty–second Street.
Hear the beat of dancing feet,
It’s the song I love the melody of Forty–second Street.
Little “nifties” from the Fifties, innocent and sweet;
Sexy ladies from the Eighties, who are indiscreet.
They’re side by side, they’re glorified
Where the underworld can meet the elite, Forty–second Street.
(Naughty, bawdy, gaudy, sporty, Forty-second Street!)
