America West Side Story Lyrics

[ANITA]
Puerto Rico
My heart’s devotion
Let it sink back in the ocean
Always the hurricanes blowing
Always the population growing
{And the money owing
[And the sunlight streaming
And the natives steaming
I like the island Manhattan
Smoke on your pipe
And put that in!

[GIRLS]
I like to be in America
Okay by me in America
Everything free in America

[BERNARDO]
For a small fee in America

[ANITA]
Buying on credit is so nice

[BERNARDO]
One look at us and they charge twice

[ROSALIA]
I have my own washing machine

[INDIO]
What will you have though to keep clean?

[ANITA]
Skyscrapers bloom in America

[ROSALIA]
Cadillacs zoom in America

[TERESITA]
Industry boom in America

[BOYS]
Twelve in a room in America

[ANITA]
Lots of new housing with more space

[BERNARDO]
Lots of doors slamming in our face

[ANITA]
I’ll get a terrace apartment

[BERNARDO]
Better get rid of your accent

[ANITA]
Life can be bright in America

[BOYS]
If you can fight in America

[GIRLS]
Life is all right in America

[BOYS]
If you’re all white in America

[GIRLS]
Here you are free and you have pride

[BOYS]
Long as you stay on your own side

[GIRLS]
Free to be anything you choose

[BOYS]
Free to wait tables and shine shoes

[BERNARDO]
Everywhere grime in America
Organized crime in America
Terrible time in America

[ANITA]
You forget I’m in America

[BERNARDO]
I think I’ll go back to San Juan

[ANITA]
I know a boat you can get on (Bye Bye!)

[BERNARDO]
Everyone there will give big cheer!

[ANITA]
Everyone there will have moved here
