Rose Brice's Saloon on Henry Street is the center of a block party decorated
with banners congratulating Fanny. The neighbors and party guests all sing:

All:
Henry Street,
No, it ain't Broadway, it's Henry Street.
Way after midnight
Lit up as bright as a lighthouse
Brighter tonight than the White House.
Boys:
We're proud to tell you that C.P.A.'s
We got in dozens, and lawyers, take your choice.
Messes and messes of young D.D.-esses,
A looney who teaches voice,
Girls:
Ah, ha, ha, ha--
All:
Henry Street has something it ain't had so far:
The greatest, most glamorous, genuine, glorified
Ziegfeld star.
We're proud to tell you that C.P.A.'s
We got in dozens, and lawyers, take your choice.
Messes and messes of young D.D.-esses,
A looney who teaches voice,
Ah, ha, ha, ha--
Henry Street has something it ain't had so far:
The greatest, most glamorous, genuine, glorified
Ziegfeld star.
