America lyrics, 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!
O.K. by me in America!
Ev'rything free in America.

[Bernando:]
For a small fee in America!

[Anita:]
Buying on credit is so nice.

[Bernando:]
One look at us, and they charge twice.

[Rosalia:]
I have my own washing machine.

[Indio:]
What will you have, though, to keep clean?

[Girls]
[Anita:] Skyscrapers bloom in America,
[Rosalia:] Cadillacs zoom in America,
[Consuelo:] Industry boom in America.

[Guys:]
Twelve in a room in America!

[Anita:]
Lots of new housing with more space.

[Bernando:]
Lots of doors slamming in our face.

[Anita:]
I'll have a terrace apartment.

[Bernando:]
Better get rid of your accent.

[Anita:]
Life can be bright in America.

[Guys:]
If you can fight in America.

[Girls:]
Life is allright in America.

[Guys:]
If your all-white in America.

[Guys:]
la-la-la-la-la America... America
la-la-la-la-la America... America

[Girls:]
Here you are free and you have pride.

[Guys:]
Long as you stay on your own side.

[Girls:]
Free to be anything you choose.

[Guys:]
Free to wait tables and shine shoes!

[Bernando:]
Everywhere grime in America,
Organized crime in America,
Terrible time in America.

[Anita:]
You forget I'm in America.

[Bernando:]
I think I'll go back to San Juan.

[Anita:]
I know a boat you can get on.
[girls] ; bye bye!
[bernardo] ; uh-huh

[Bernando:]
Everyone there will give big cheer!

[Anita:]
Everyone there will have moved here.

[All:]
Ole!
