lyrics

[Citizens of Merano]

Oh, light the heart

That lingers in Merano

Merano! The spa no

Connoisseur of spas

Would miss. (So healthy!)

Highly recommended

Is this sweet metropolis (Mental and physical bliss!)

The gods have smiled

And blessed is Merano

Merano! There are no

Fitter burghers to be found. Such vigor!

Take the time to taste us--

We'll give you a welcome

That's typically Tyrol

For then we are sure of our ground

Right now we're Italian

We used to be German

The border keeps shifting around

[Mayor of Merano]

Speaking as one of the patriarchs

I don't mind taking your lira or marks

[Citizens of Merano]

Oh I get high when

I saunter by

The mountains of Merano

Rosy-cheeked Merano

Flourishing to a fault

The sparkling streams

The bracing air

The therapeutic salt

I'd have to be carried away

To call a halt!

Oh, I feel great

In this bouncing state

All hail to thee, Merano

Hearty hale Merano--

[Women, spoken]

Any objections?

[Men, spoken]

Nein!

[Citizens of Merano]

Where breathing in

Will turn you on

Where water tastes like wine

Get up your get up and go

And get in line!

It's living your life in a show

By Roger and Hammerstein

Oh, sad the soul

Who pa**es by Merano

Merano! So far no

Soul has ever pa**ed us by

(They love us!)

Why not stay forever?

Oh so many reasons why (All those in favor say "Aye”)

Aye!

So sing a song

Let's hear it for Merano

Merano!

[Sopranos]

Soprano

[Altos]

Alto

[Tenors]

Tenor

[Ba**es]

Ba**

[Citizens of Merano]

Agree! (We're wholesome.)

What a happy haven!

This is a place

Where your arteries soften--

Cholesterol hasn't a chance

From mountain to valley

The natural goodness

Is fighting pollution's advance

[Mayor of Merano]

So come to us and feel the force

All major credit cards taken of course

[Citizens of Merano]

Oh, I get high when

I saunter by

The mountains of Merano

Rosy-cheeked Merano

Flourishing to a fault

The sparkling streams

The bracing air

The therapeutic salt

I'd have to be carried away

To call a halt!

Once in a while

All the gods will smile

On little old Merano

Humble, shy Merano

Suddenly hits the press

And I report with all the pride

And joy that I possess:

Half of the world and his wife

Has our address!

Our little town will be rife

With games of chess!

[Whistling]

[Citizens of Merano]

Get up your get up and go

And get in line!

It's living your life in a show

By Rogers and Hammerstein!

[Freddie]

What a scene

What a joy

What a lovely sight

When my game is

The big sensation!

Has the mob's sporting taste

Altered overnight?

Have they found

New sophistication?

[Florence]

Not yet!

They just want to see

If the nice guy

Beats the bum

If it's East-West

And the money's sky high--

[Florence & Freddie]

They all come

[Freddie]

You can raise all you want

If you raise the roof

Scream and shout

And the gate increases

Break the rules

Break the bank

I'm the living proof

They don't care

How I move my pieces

Well, I know I'm the best there is

But all they want is a show

Well, that's all right

I'll be glad to oblige--

[Florence & Freddie]

SRO

SRO!

[Citizens of Merano]

Oh, I get high when

I saunter by

The mountains of Merano

Rosy-cheeked Merano

Flourishing to a fault

The sparkling streams

The bracing air

The therapeutic salt

I'd have to be carried away

To call a halt!

Oh, I feel great

In this bouncing state

All hail to thee, Merano

Hearty hale Merano--

[Women, spoken]

Any objections?

[Men, spoken]

Nein!

[Citizens of Merano]

Where breathing in

Will turn you on

Where water tastes like wine

Get up your get up and go

And get in line!

It's living your life in a show

By Roger and Hammerstein!

Now for the sell:

We put the ice into paradise

We are the salt of the Earth

Sound as a bell

Check out the waters

And check out the hygiene

At which we excel

Check into a hotel

And schnell
