D. The theme of migration in American music

1. The song “New York, New York,” composed by John Kander and Fred Ebb in 1977, talks about the expectations of someone who is migrating to New York. Read the lyrics and do the activities that follow them.

New York, New York

(by Frank Sinatra)

Start spreadin’ the news,

I’m leavin' today

I want to be part of it,

New York, New York…

These vagabond shoes

Are longing to stray

Right through the very heart of it,

New York, New York…

I wanna wake up in a city

That doesn’t sleep

And find I’m king of the hill,

Top of the heap…

These little town blues

are melting away

I’ll make a brand new start of it

In old New York.

If I can make it there,

I’ll make it anywhere

It’s up to you, New York, New York…

New York, New York

I want to wake up in a city

That never sleeps

And find I’m A-number-one,

Top of the list

King of the hill,

A-number-one…

These little town blues

Oh they’re melting away

I’m gonna make a brand new start of it

In old New York

And if I can make it there,

I’m gonna make it anywhere

It’s up to you, New York, New York…

New York…
