America

West Side Story


AMERICA

ANITA
Puerto Rico,
my heart devotion
let it sink back
in the ocean
always the hurricanes blowing
always the population growing
and the money owing
and sunlight streaming
and the natives steaming
i like the island manhatan

ROSALIA
i know you do

ANITA
smoke on your pipe
and put that in

GAROTAS
i like to be in america
okay by me in america
everything free in america

BERNARDO
for a small fee in america

GAROTAS
buying on credit is so nice

BERNARDO
one look at us and they charge twice

ROSALIA
i have my own washing machine

JOSE
what will you have though to keep clean?

ANITA
skyscrapers bloom in america

ROSALIA
cadillacs zoom in america

CONSUELO
industry boom in america

GAROTOS
twelve in a room in america

ANITA
lots of new housing with more space

BERNARDO
lots dors slamming in our face

ANITA
i'll get a terrace apartment

BERNARDO
better get rid of your accent

GAROTAS
life can be bright in america

GAROTOS
il you can fight in america

GAROTAS
life is all right in america

GAROTOS
if you're all white in america

GAROTAS
here you are free and you have pride

GAROTOS
long as you stay on your own side

GAROTAS
free to be anything you choose

GAROTOS
free to wait tables and shine shoes

BERNARDO
everywhere grime in america
organized crime in america
terrible time in america

ANITA
you forgot i'm in america

BERNARDO
i think i go back 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
