Lyrics LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA.
CAN YOU HEAR IT?
NO, NOT QUITE.
THEN COME
WHERE YOU'LL BE ABLE TO HEAR
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!
RIDE THE TUMBLER!
EAT A HOT DOG!
HAVE YOUR PALM READ!
DO IT RIGHT!
I SEE FOR TOMORROW
UNBEARABLE SORROW
UNLESS TONIGHT
YOU RUN TO PLAY
ON THE MIDWAY.
THERE'S THE OCEAN!
I CAN SEE!
THEN, OH, WHAT A SHAME
YOU WON'T GET TO SEE
CONEY ISLAND WITH ME.

BETTY,
IT'S TEMPTING
AND I'D LOVE TO.
IT'S A PITY.
IT'S A SHAME.
IT'S JUST THAT I'VE GOT OTHER...
NOW, DON'T SAY A WORD.
YOU'RE REALLY NOT TO BLAME.
THINGS ARE AS THEY SHOULD BE
AND IT HARDLY SEEMS A CRIME.
NO, YOU GO OUT TO DINNER,
WHILE I HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME!
I'LL TELL YOU SOMETHIN'
THAT EV'RYONE KNOWS,
FROM THE BARKER
TO THE CHILD
WITH HIS MAIDEN AUNT:
IN THE REST OF THE WORLD
YA DO WHAT YA HAFTA,
BUT AT CONEY ISLAND,
YA DO WHAT YOU WANT!

LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA.
GO ON SING IT!
WELL, I MIGHT.
JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES
AND GUESS WHERE WE ARE?
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!
TAKE YOUR TIE OFF!
MESS YOUR HAIR UP!
HAVE YOUR PALM READ.
YEAH!
DO IT RIGHT!
OR TAKE A RIDE
ON THE ROLLER COASTER
AND HOLD ME TIGHT...
GET YOUR HANDS UP,
WITH A 'WHEE!'
WITH A WHAT?!
WITH A 'WHEE!'
OH, BOY, WHAT A SHAME
YOU WON'T GET TO SEE
CONEY ISLAND...

WHERE THE HECK
IS THE MIDWAY?
BY THE OCEAN
ON THE RIGHT!
ON THE LEFT!
ON THE RIGHT!
SO PUT OUT THE CAT
'CAUSE WE'RE GONNA SEE
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!

STEP RIGHT UP!
STEP RIGHT UP!
TAKE A GANDER AND SEE!
THE FATTEST LADY ALIVE
CAN BE YOURS
FOR ONE THIN DIME.
ONE THIN DIME,
IF YOU'LL PARDON THE PUN!
NINETY SEVEN POUNDS...
THAT'S HER NOSE!
OOH!
NOT TO MENTION
HER TWENTY SEVEN INCH TONGUE!
YUCH!
SPEAK UP!
TEN CENTS!
LET ME HEAR YA!
THERE'S ONE!
TWO!
THREE!

FOR ONCE,
LET'S CHASE ADVENTURE.
SEE THE MIDWAY
BURNING BRIGHT!
SO PUT OUT THE CAT,
AND LEAVE THE SALOON,
AND LOCK UP THE FLAT,
AND SWALLOW THE KEY
'CAUSE WE'RE GONNA SEE
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!

A RIDE OF THRILL
AND ADVENTURE!
ON THE COASTER,
HOLD ME TIGHT!
THERE'S NOWHERE ELSE
FOR DARLING
BUT HERE,
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!
RIDE THE TUMBLER!
EAT A HOT DOG!
HAVE YOUR PALM READ
ON THE RUN!
WITH US
AT THE SIDESHOW
I KNOW YOU
AND I'D SHOW EM.
FOR ONCE,
LET'S CHASE AN ADVENTURE!
SEE THE MIDWAY
BURNING BRIGHT!
SO PUT OUT THE CAT
AND LEAVE THE SALOON
AND LOCK UP THE FLAT
AND SWALLOW THE KEY,
'CAUSE WE'RE GONNA SEE
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!

Lyrics SHE'S FULL OF SURPRISES,
DEVOID OF CLICHE.
NEVER APPALLING,
BUT ALWAYS RISQUE.
NO OTHER BEAUTY
HAS MORE ON DISPLAY!
THIS IS THE GIRL
WHO HAS GOT IT.
SHE ALWAYS AT AUCTION
BUT NEVER OUTBID.
QUICK TO ENTICE YOU
BUT SLOW TO FORBID.
GOOD WITH HER EGO
AND GREAT WITH HER ID!
GIVE ME A GIRL
WHO HAS GOT IT IN SPADES!

WHO CARES FOR A HEAVENLY CREATURE
IF HER BRAIN IS UNEMPLOYED?
STATE OF MIND,
NOT JUST PHYSICAL BEAUTY,
IS WHAT LEAVES 'EM OVERJOYED!
LIKE FREUD SAYS:

IT'S IRRESISTIBLE,
IT HAS A PLAN:
MEN WIN THE LADIES,
AND LADIES THE MAN!
OH, YA KNOW IT
WHEN YA GOT IT.
WHEN YA GOT IT
LET 'EM SEE IT.
WHEN THEY SEE IT
THEY WILL WANT IT.
WHEN THEY WANT IT,
WATCH 'EM FALL!
WHEN YOU'VE GOT IT,
YOU'VE GOT IT ALL!

IS THERE A WOMAN AMONG US
WHO HAS IT
FROM HER TOP TO HER TOES?
IS THERE A WOMAN SO TEMPTING
MEN ARE FOLLOWING
EV'RYWHERE SHE GOES?
COULD IT BE HER?
OR MAYBE HER?
I WANT TO KNOW!
I WANT TO FIND THAT GIRL
WHO'D STOP CITY TRAFFIC
WITH A BAT OF HER EYES.
AND GET MEN SO HOT
THEY HAVE TO LOOSEN THEIR TIES.
A GIRL WHO'D MAKE A JESUIT
GIVE UP ON BEING CELIBATE.

'CAUSE WHEN SHE IS STRUTTIN,
WE'RE HOT ON HER TRAIL.
MEN TAKE A GANDER
AND START TURNING PALE.
MOST OTHER LADIES
WOULD END UP IN JAIL,
BUT GIRLS WITH IT
GET ACQUITTED AT ONCE.

PREPARE FOR
THE WOMAN WHO'S GOT IT.
WE BEGIN OUR SEARCH WITH HOPE.
SOUND THE CALL
FOR AN ARMY OF MEN!
AND I MIGHT EVEN ASK THE POPE!
GOD HELP ME.

FALL INTO LINE
AND WE'LL COVER THE SCENE.
LET'S FIND THE IT GIRL
AND MAKE HER A QUEEN.
OH, YA KNOW IT
WHEN SHE'S GOT IT.
WHEN SHE'S GOT IT
THEN YA SEE IT.
WHEN YA SEE IT
THEN YA WANT IT.
IF SHE'S GOT IT,
WATCH THEM FALL!
LET'S FIND THAT GIRL
WHO'S GOT IT ALL!

YOU'RE ALMOST THERE,
NOW I WANT FLAIR,
THAT SOMEONE RARE
WHO IS THE RIGHTFUL HEIR TO

ALL OF THE SIRENS,
WHO HAD IT LONG AGO:
LIKE LADY GODIVA,
WHO LET ALL OF IT SHOW.
BUT WE'LL FIND ONE
WHO'S ALL THE RAGE,
TO CONSECRATE THE CHARLESTON AGE,
SO SHOUT HALLELUJAH
AND FOLLOW HER PLAN.
YOU'LL GET YOUR LADY
AND YOU'LL GET YOUR MAN.
OH. YA KNOW IT
WHEN YA GOT IT.
WHEN YA GOT IT
LET 'EM SEE IT.
WHEN THEY SEE IT
THEY WILL WANT IT.
WHEN THEY WANT IT,
WATCH 'EM FALL!
WHEN YOU'VE GOT IT,
YOU'VE GOT IT ALL!
YOU'VE GOT IT ALL!
YOU'VE GOT IT ALL!
YOU'VE GOT IT ALL!
YOU'VE GOT IT ALL!
YOU'VE GOT IT ALL!
YOU'VE GOT IT ALL!
YOU'VE GOT IT ALL!
