King Kong the Musical - Queen of New York Lyrics


"Queen of New York" is a song performed by Christiani Pitts (Ann Darrow), and Company from The King Kong the Musical.

ANN DARROW:
Another arrow shoots and arrow through the chest
But every no only brings me closer to “yes”
New York drop me with a body shot,
But I’m not staying down
I’ll fight like hell, so ring that bell,
Look who’s comin’ out swingin’ in the open rounds!
Fresh in the city living hand-to-mouth,
It’s the marquis for me or a long way down
I’ve got me a new name, a new accent,
A new backstory and a brand new walk
I’ve got the stock that’s not gonna drop,
I’ll never give up ’til I am the Queen of New York

One dress and yeah I guess I’m a mess,
But I won’t rest til I am the Queen of New York!
So watch me as I go, cause no one even knows
Nobody knows
I’m gonna be the Queen of New York

There ain’t no queens on the midwest farm,
Just nameless faces on fella’s arms
The story ends when your some man’s wife,
I don’t want to bend to fit some man’s life
I can’t give up til I’m up on stage,
Cause nobody’s ever gonna put me back in that cage
So if poverty’s how it’s gotta be,
At least I’m not some man’s property
No one answers for Ann but me!

ENSEMBLE:
Nobody knows she’s the queen!
She’s the queen of New York! New York!

ANN DARROW:
I guess this city likes its pretty Damsels in Distress,
Never gonna rest til I’m Queen of New York!
So turn your heart to stone, I’m never going home,
I’m taking my throne, I’m gonna be the Queen of New York

ENSEMBLE:
Look at this city goin’ up!
Goin’ up, never gonna stop!
Never gonna give up, get what you want!
What you want! Get On Top!

ANN DARROW:
Queen of New York

ENSEMBLE:
Look at this city goin’ up! Goin’ up, never gonna stop!
Never gonna give up, get what you want!
What you want!
Get On Top! Get on Top!

ANN DARROW:
Queen of New York
