Song lyrics to Broadway Melody (1929) Music by Nacio Herb Brown, Lyrics by Arthur Freed, performed in Broadway Melody of 1938

There may be streets that have their sorrow
A smile today, a tear tomorrow
But there’s a street that lives in glory
It always tells the same old story

Don’t bring a frown to old Broadway
You’ve gotta clown on Broadway
Your troubles there are out of style
‘Cause Broadway always wears a smile

A million lights they flicker there
A million hearts beat quicker there
No skies of grey on the Great White Way
That’s the Broadway Melody

SPOKEN:
Broadway, you magic street
River of humanity
I have trudged my weary feet
Down your Gay White Way
Dreaming a million dreams of fame
Yearning for you to know my name
Broadway, you have heard the story
Of a lot of tears and glories
But you always are the same
Always playin’ at the game
Noisy, hurried, with your bustle
Scrambling, dizzy, full of hustle
Jazzy, silly, brassy, frilly
Broadway singing, Broadway’s music
That’s the Broadway Melody

Don’t bring a frown to old Broadway
You’ve gotta clown on Broadway
Your troubles there are out of style
‘Cause Broadway always wears a smile

A million lights they flicker there
A million hearts beat quicker there
No skies of grey on the Great White Way
That’s the Broadway Melody
