John Kander

"Cheering for Me Now"

So they're cheering for me now
In streets, hear them cheering for me now
Right on Broadway, they're cheering for me now
And one day, all the enemies I've made
Might hold their own parade
But not today

I came here with nothing
Like hundreds before me
And millions behind me
You know you can find me
In New York

Where everyone's different
But share the same island
Polluted and loud
But you're safe in the crowd
Here in New York

Today, it's my city
Tomorrow, who knows?
Today, we're a country
Let's see how that goes

Upstate doesn't trust us
They're saving their sameness
They're scared of what's strange
But each corner means change
Here in New York

Where else can you wander
And hear every language?
We fight like a marriage
Then share the same carriage
We suffer the weather
We bind and we tether
This nation together

I'm just getting started
But time's of the essence
I can't say I've made it
But I'd never trade it
They've thrown a parade
In my New York

Cheering for me now
Can you hear them cheering for me now?
