Ain't no Man Manhattan

If/Then (Musical)


So you've got nothing much in common
With the artist down in Red Hook
Who lost the place he works in
So you could build some condos on the water?
But he buys coffee from the coffee guy
Who's renting from the actor
Who's married to the doctor
Who is in the E. R. trying to save your daughter
Ain't no man Manhattan
No island all his own
On Roosevelt or Staten
Ain't none of us alone
Your action's my reaction
In ways you won't expect
We're all in this together
Yeah we all connect

Take the environment, or housing
Human rights, or education
Every issue is connected
To each person here
There ain't no separation

Ain't no "I" an island
Anywhere on Earth
How much you love your life is
What ev'ry life is worth
Your answer is my question
My cause is your effect
We're all in this together
Yeah, we all connect

And we all somehow keep moving even so

All of eight-point-two-five million on the go

All changing you in ways you might not know
Oh

Ain't no man Manhattan
No island all his owwn
On Roosevelt or Staten
Ain't none of us alone
We live in these collisions
These accidents arise
We somehow find each other
In each other's eyes

So a kindergarten teacher

Helps a certain city planner

Meet a surgeon from Nebraska

And his best friend is a doctor

And the city keeps evolving
And the people keep revolving
All of eight-point-two-five million on the run
A diff'rent way for ev'ry single one
All turning and returning, fast and slow


And we somehow find each other even so

Compositor: Tom Kitt
