Song lyrics to Give My Regards to Broadway (1904). Music by George M. Cohan

Give My Regards to Broadway is a song written by George M. Cohan for his musical play Little Johnny Jones which debuted in 1904 in New York.

Cohan, playing the title character, sings this song as his friend is about to sail to America, looking for evidence aboard the ship that will clear his name for allegedly throwing the English Derby. He is sure he’ll become a star at Broadway, therefore signing off with: Give my regards to Broadway.

Did you ever see two Yankees part
Upon a foreign shore
When the good ship’s just about to start
For old New York once more?
With tear-dimmed eye they say goodbye
They’re friends without a doubt
When the man on the pier
Shouts, “Let them clear”
As the ship strikes out

Give my regards to Broadway
Remember me to Herald Square
Tell all the gang at Forty-Second Street
That I will soon be there
Whisper of how I’m yearning
To mingle with the old time throng
Give my regards to old Broadway
And say that I’ll be there e’er long

Say hello to dear old Coney Isle
If there you chance to be
When you’re at the Waldorf have a smile
And charge it up to me
Mention my name ev’ry place you go
As ’round the town you roam
Wish you’d call on my gal
Now remember, old pal
When you get back home

Give my regards to Broadway
Remember me to Herald Square
Tell all the gang at Forty-Second Street
That I will soon be there
Whisper of how I’m yearning
To mingle with the old time throng
Give my regards to old Broadway
And say that I’ll be there e’er long
