Ain't No Man Manhattan Lyrics
[Lucas:]
So you've got nothing much in common
With the artist down in Red Hook
Who lost the place he works in
So you could build some condos on the water?
But he buys coffee from the coffee guy
Who's renting from the actor
Who's married to the doctor
Who is in the E.R. trying to save your daughter
Ain't no man Manhattan
No island all his own
On Roosevelt or Staten
Ain't none of us alone
Your action's my reaction
In ways you won't expect
We're all in this together
Yeah we all connect

Take the environment, or housing
Human rights, or education
Every issue is connected
To each person here,
there ain't no separation

[Lucas, Liz, Josh, Anne & Kate:]
Ain't no "I" an island
Anywhere on Earth
How much you love your life is
What ev'ry life is worth
Your answer is my question,
My cause is your effect
We're all in this together
Yeah, we all connect

[Josh:]
And we all somehow keep moving even so

[Josh & Kate:]
All of eight-point-two-five million on the go

[All:]
All changing you in ways you might not know
Oh...

Ain't no man Manhattan
No island all his owwn
On Roosevelt or Staten
Ain't none of us alone
We live in these collisions
These accidents arise
We somehow find each other
In each other's eyes

[Lucas:]
So a kindergarten teacher

[Lucas & Kate:]
Helps a certain city planner

[Lucas, Kate & Liz:]
Meet a surgeon from Nebraska

[Lucas, Kate, Liz & Josh:]
And his best friend is a doctor

[Lucas, David & Company:]
And the city keeps evolving
And the people keep revolving
All of eight-point-two-five million on the run
A diff'rent way for ev'ry single one
All turning and returning, fast and slow

[Liz, Josh, Kate, Anne, Lucas & David:]
And we somehow find each other even so
