Barry Manilow - Just Arrived

rate me

Spoken:

Her name was Lola!

She's from Tulsa.. yeah!

Just arrived, Grand Central Station, two suitcases in hand

And a dream in her heart

Just arrived track seventeen

All the way from Tulsa Okla-nowhere

Where's my chauffeured limousine?

Where's the marching band?

Just in time to take the town

And though my knees are shaking

I'm making my stand

It all starts now

I can see my name in neon

I won't allow

Any cloud to rain on me!

Don't ask me how

But before too long

I'll be on some marquee

New York or bust!

I've just arrived!

Just arrived track seventeen

(Just arrived track twenty four)

All the way from Tulsa Oklahoma

(All the way from St. Paul, Minnesota)

(All the way from Fargo, North Dakota)

Though I'm still a little green

(Marching through the open door)

When I left, I left my past behind

(Wonder what I'll find)

Just imagine, here I am is the girl from work

(The soda jerk)

(The groc'ry clerk)

The kid they all made fun of

Is one of a kind

It all starts now

Look who's currently appearing

This girl's a wow

All the magazines agree

I'll take my bow

And the world will all be cheering, just for me

New York or bust

I've just arrived

Hey!

(Hey! Hey! which way's uptown?)

Somebody said they're auditioning for "south pacific"

(Where's the palace?)

Say!

(Say! Say! I'm from Dallas!)

Somewhere I read they need lookers and I look terrific

(My name's Alice!)

This is my moment

(Hey, world here I come!)

I knows it I can taste it

And I sure ain't gonna waste it

And it's time I faced it

It all starts now

(Right now!)

Look who's currently appearing

(I can see my name in blazing neon)

This girl's a wow

(And how!)

All the magazines agree

(No way any cloud would dare to rain on me)

I'll take my bow

(Oh, wow! That's me! I'll be on some marquee!)

And the world will all be cheering just for me

Gathering dust

I just survived

Now, New York or bust

I've just arrived!

Hey world

I've just arrived!
