Lyrics:Anita:
Puerto Rico, my heart's devotion...
Let it sink back in the ocean!
Always the
hurricanes blowing,
Always the population growing..
And the money owing,
And sunlight
streaming,
And the natives steaming.
I like the island Manhattan--
Smoke on your pipe
and put that in!

Sharks' Girls:
I like to be in America!
Okay by me in
America!
Everything free in America!

Bernardo:
For a small fee in
America.

Anita:
Buying on credit is so nice.

Bernardo:
One look at
us and they charge twice!

A Shark Girl:
I have my own washing machine.

A
Shark:
What will you have got to keep clean?

Girls:
Skyscrapers bloom in
America,
Cadillac zoom in America,
Industry boom in America!

Boys:
Twelve
in a room in America.

Anita:
Lots of new housing with more
space.

Bernardo:
Lots of doors slamming in our face.

Anita:
I'll get
a terrace apartment!

Bernardo:
Better get rid of your
accent!

Anita:
Life can be bright in America.

Boys:
If you can fight
in America.

Girls:
Life is all right in America.

Boys:
If you are
white in America!

Girls:
Here you are free and you have
pride!

Boys:
Long as you stay on your own side.

Girls:
Free to be
anything you choose.

Boys:
Free to wait tables and shine
shoes.

Bernardo:
Everywhere crime in America,
Organized crime in
America,
Terrible time in America..

Anita:
You forget I'm in
America.

Bernardo:
I think I go back to San Juan.

Anita:
I know a
boat you can get on!

Bernardo:
Everyone there will give big
cheer!

Anita:
Everyone there will have moved here
