West Side Story: Jet Song Lyrics

West Side Story: Jet Song - Carol Lawrence

When you're a jet

You're a jet all the way

From your first cigarette

To your last dyin' day


When you're a jet

If the spit hits the fan

You got brothers around

You're a family man


You're never alone


You're never disconnected


You're home with your own


When company's expected


You're well protected


Then you are set

With a capital j

Which you'll never forget

Till they cart you away

When you're a jet


You stay a jet


I know tony like i know me i guarantee you can count him in


In out let's get crackin'


Where you gonna find bernardo


At the dance tonight at the gym

But the gym's neutral territory


I'm gonna make nice there i'm only gonna challenge him

Great daddy-o


When you're a jet

You're the top cat in town

You're the gold medal kid

With the heavyweight crown


When you're a jet

You're the swingin'est thing

Little boy you're a man

Little man you're a king


The jets are in gear


Our cylinders are clickin'


The sharks'll steer clear


'Cause ev'ry puerto rican's a lousy chicken


Here come the jets

Like a bat out of hell

Someone gets in our way

Someone don't feel so well


Here come the jets

Little world step aside

Better go underground

Better run better hide


We're drawin' the line


So keep your noses hidden


We're hangin' a sign


Says visitors forbidden


And we ain't kiddin'


Here come the jets


Yeah and we're gonna beat

Ev'ry last buggin' gang

On the whole buggin' street

On the whole
