|Alternative Title||First line of text: Have you ever noticed when you're on Broadway how the people passing you will swing and sway;First line of chorus: Just watch them do that Broadway glide, all kinds of people side by side;Ziegfeld follies (Revue)|
VERSE 01: Have you ever noticed, when you’re on Broadway,/How the people passing you will swing and sway;/The man he swings a cane, the girlie swings a bag,/Ev’rybody looks as if they’re doing a rag./And the reason for it is the atmosphere,/Ev’rywhere they go a diff’rent rag they hear;/They declare/It’s a bear./You can hear it ev’rywhere, and when you see how it’s affecting them you cannot help but stare.
CHORUS: Just watch them do that Broadway glide,/All kinds of people side by side,/Just see how easy they’re taking it,/Look ev’rybody is shaking it./After you once get the trick of it,/Geel it’s a Bore, it’s a Bore, you get sick of it./And once you’ve seen the Broadway Glide/You won’t be happy till you’ve tried;/You will want to take it up, take it up, take it up,/And you’ll want to shake it up, shake it up, shake it up,/For ev’rybody does that Broadway Glide./Glide.
VERSE 02: Standing on the corner,/Forty second street,/Notice evrybody shuffling their feet,/Even if you go into a swell cafe,/See how all the people at the tables will sway./See the old tragedian and young soubrette,/There’s a Dutch comedian and suffragette,/Over here/Overe there./See them do it ev’rywhere, and ev’rybody seems to want to throw their shoulders in the air.
