LyricsEdit

Veronica:
They say the neon lights are bright on broadway
They say there's always magic in the air
But when you're walkin' down the street
And you ain't got enough to eat
The glitter rubs right off and you're nowhere

Karen:
Do do do do do do do do do do

Veronica:
They say the women treat you fine on Broadway (Karen: On Broadway)
But lookin' at them just gives me the blues
'Cause how ya gonna make some time (Karen: Make some time)
When all you got is one thin dime (Karen: One thin dime)
And one thin dime won't even shine your shoes

Both:
Do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do do...

Karen:
They say that I won't last too long on Broadway (Veronica: On Broadway)
I'll catch a greyhound bus for home they all say
But they're dead wrong I know they are (Veronica: Know they are)
'Cause I can play this here guitar (Veronica: Here guitar)
And I won't quit till I'm a star on Broadway (Veronica: On Broadway)
And I won't quit till I'm a star on Broadway (Veronica: On Broadway)
On Broadway!

Veronica:
On Broadway!

Karen:
Oh!

Veronica:
Hey, yeah!

Karen:
On Broad-

Veronica:
Hey, Broadway, yeah!

Karen:
On Broad-

Veronica:
Broadway!
And I won't quit 'til I'm a star!

Karen:
On Broadway!
Hey, yeah!

Veronica:
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Yeah!

Both:
On Broadway!
