Manhattan Downbeat Lyrics

Verse:

Tempo, you know that good old tempo:

Chorus 1:

Just give me that Manhattan Downbeat

That beats a tempo of its own;

You've got to shout, "This is it!"

The day you visit

The jumpinest town has ever known.

Keep your Paree and London town beat

Up with your bockers stands alone;

Drive up any avenue, swing down any street,

No beat has Manhattan Downbeat beat!

Patter:

Manhattan has a beat that's all its own,

Manhattan has a beat to call its own.

So, Mister Leader, when you give the band the downbeat,

A one, two, three;

Chorus 2:

And give 'em that Manhattan Downbeat

That beats a tempo of its own;

You've got to shout, "This is it!"

The day you visit

The jumpinest town has ever known.

Keep your Paree and London town beat

Up with your bockers stands alone;

Drive up any avenue, swing down any street,

No beat has Manhattan Downbeat

No beat has Manhattan Downbeat

No beat has Manhattan Downbeat beat!
