The Lyrics

Had a great Sunday afternoon in the big town. Too bad the Yankees weren't there to enjoy it, stuck in that dreary dome in Tampa Bay. But they did their part.
(instrumental opening)

The taxi would take all my dough
so into subway I did go.
A-train on a Sunday afternoon.
I head up to that store
where'd I'd bought lots of stuff before.
Spending on a Sunday afternoon.

Aw, subway, subway, subway train will squeeze.
But there's a well-built mama pressed up against me.

And I love to walk those city streets
in the town that can't beat!
New York on a Sunday afternoon!

In the summertime!
In the summertime!
In the summertime!
In the summertime!

The subway takes a real long while
to get me down to Coney Isle
with its roller coaster full of cruelty.
So I just watch them jog
on boardwalk with my Nathan's dog.
Kosher on a Sunday afternoon.

Aw, riding dirty, on that old subway.
But got my MetroCard full, no more do I pay!

And I love to walk those city streets
in the town that can't beat!
New York on a Sunday afternoon!

In the summertime!
In the summertime!
In the summertime!
In the summertime!

Aw, Yankees broadcast on the radio!
Through the headphones, hear them winning, don't you know!

It's a seventy-eight memory
brought back here in N.Y.C.!
New York on a Sunday afternoon!
In the summertime!
In the summertime!
In the summertime!
In the summertime!

(instrumental fadeout)

Oh, spare me your living-in-the-past Yankees and your liberal Borders. Tomorrow belongs to the Mets, tomorrow belongs to Regnery Press, tomorrow belongs to the developers who will turn that ghetto Coney Island into a bedroom community for Wall Street traders, the true heroes of our modern world. Tomorrow belongs to Rudy Giuliani. And tomorrow belongs to me! Yeah.

"Tomorrow belongs to me"... that sounds familiar. Like from a certain Broadway show? "Cabaret." Who sang it?
