All I Need

(Kander-Ebb)


All I need is
One good break
Just one good break and
Mister, watch my speed
One substantial break is all I need

One substantial break
Is all I need
To make them all
Stand up and cheer
I could set this town right on its ear

Gimme gimme a break
I don't want any handout
Gimme gimme a boost
And I'll ever be fanned out
Gimma gimme a lift
And reporters'll stand outside my door
All begging for a chance to
Get an exclusive

All I need is
One good break
Just one to make
A splash they won't forget
Hey, New York, I'm gonna get you yet!

Gimme gimme a chance
And I know I can do it
Gimme gimme a boost
And I'm gonna see to it
Gimme gimme a lift
And I'll buy me some new Italian clothes
Some French perfume and strike a fancy pose
And elevate my nose
And mom and dad wouldn't know me

All I need is
One good break
Just one good break
Then mister, watch my speed
One substantial break
That's all I need
One!
