The Jet Song (West Side Story) Lyrics


When you're a Jet,

You're a Jet all the way

From your first cigarette

To your last dyin' day.

When you're a Jet,

If the spit hits the fan,

You got brothers around,

You're a family man!

You're never alone,

You're never disconnected!

You're home with your own:

When company's expected,

You're well protected!

Then you are set

With a capital J,

Which you'll never forget

Till they cart you away.

When you're a Jet,

You stay a Jet!

(Spoken) I know Tony like I know me. I guarantee you can count him in.

ACTION: In, out, let's get crackin'.

A-RAB: Where you gonna find Bernardo?

RIFF: At the dance tonight at the gym.

BIG DEAL: But the gym's neutral territory.

RIFF: (Innocently) I'm gonna make nice there! I'm only gonna challenge him.

A-RAB: Great, Daddy-O!

RIFF: So everybody dress up sweet and sharp.

ALL (Sing)

Oh, when the Jets fall in at the cornball dance,

We'll be the sweetest dressin' gang in pants!

And when the chicks dig us in our Jet black ties,

They're gonna flip, gonna flop, gonna drop like flies!

RIFF: (Spoken) Hey. Cool. Easy. Sweet. Meet Tony and me at ten. And walk tall!

A-RAB: We always walk tall!

BABY JOHN: We're Jets!

ACTION: The greatest!


When you're a Jet,

You're the top cat in town,

You're the gold medal kid

With the heavyweight crown!


When you're a Jet,

You're the swingin'est thing:

Little boy, you're a man;

Little man, you're a king!


The Jets are in gear,

Our cylinders are clickin'!

The Sharks'll steer clear

'Cause ev'ry Puerto Rican's a lousy chicken!

Here come the Jets

Like a bat out of hell.

Someone gets in our way,

Someone don't feel so well!

Here come the Jets:

Little world, step aside!

Better go underground,

Better run, better hide!

We're drawin' the line,

So keep your noses hidden!

We're hangin' a sign,

Says "Visitors forbidden"

And we ain't kiddin'!

Here come the Jets,

Yeah! And we're gonna beat

Ev'ry last buggin' gang

On the whole buggin' street!

On the whole!
