West Side Story

West Side Story - America (movie)

rate me

ANITA (spoken)

Oh no! That is not true!

(sung)

Puerto Rico

My heart's devotion

Let it slip back in the ocean!

Always the hurricanes blowing

Always the population growing

And the money owing

And the sunlight streaming

And the natives steaming

I like the island Manhattan

CONSUELO (spoken)

I know you do!

ANITA (sung)

Smoke on your pipe and put that in!

GIRLS

I like to be in America

OK by me in America

Everything free in America

BERNARDO

For a small fee in America

ANITA

Buying on credit is so nice

BERNARDO

One look at us and they charge twice

ROSALIA

I'll have my own washing machine

CHINO

What will you have, though, to keep clean?

ANITA

Skyscrapers bloom in America

ROSALIA

Cadillacs zoom in America

TERESITA

Industry boom in America

BOYS

Twelve in a room in America

ANITA

Lots of new housing with more space

BERNARDO

Lots of doors slamming in our face

ANITA

I'll get a terrace apartment

BERNARDO

Better get rid of your accent...

ANITA

Life can be bright in America

BOYS

If you can fight in America

GIRLS

Life is alright in America

BOYS

If you're all white in America

ANITA and CONSUELO

Here you are free and you have pride

BOYS

Long as you stay on your own side

ANITA and CONSUELO

Free to be anything you choose

BOYS

Free to wait tables and shine shoes

BERNARDO

Everywhere grime in America

Organised crime in America

Terrible time in America

ANITA

You forget I'm in America!

BERNARDO

I think I go back to 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!
