Léonard BERNSTEIN : West Side Story, America



I like to be in America,
okay by me in America.
Every thing's free in America,
for a small fee in America!

I like the city of San Juan.
I know a boat you can get on.
Hundreds of flowers in full bloom.
Hundreds of people in each room!

Automobile in America,
chromium steel in America.
Wire spoke wheel in America,
very big deal in America!

I'll drive a Buick though San Juan.
If there's a road you can drive one.
I'll give my cousins a free ride.
How you fit all of them inside?

I like the stores in America, 
comfort is your's in America.
Knobs on the doors in America, 
wall to wall floors in America!

I'll bring a T.V. to San Juan.
if there's a current to turn on.
Everyone there will give big cheer.
Everyone there will have moved here!

Immigrant goes to America,
many hellos in America.
Nobody knows in America,
Puerto Rico's in America!

When I will go back to San Juan.
When will you shut up and get one?
I'll give them new washing machine.
What have they got there to keep clean?
