Cheering For Me Now

John Kander & Lin-Manuel Miranda November 20, 2018



So they’re cheering for me now
In the streets, hear them cheering for me now
Right up Broadway, they’re cheering for me now
And one day, all the enemies I’ve made might hold their own parade
But not today
I came here with nothing
Like hundreds before me
And millions behind me
You know you can find me in New York
Where everyone’s different
But share the same island
Polluted and loud
But you’re safe in the crowd
Here in New York
Today it’s my city
Tomorrow, who knows
Today we’re a country
Let’s see how that goes
Upstate doesn’t trust us
They’re safe in their saneness
They’re scared of what’s strange
But each corner means change
Here in New York
Where else can you wander
And hear every language
We fight like a marriage
Then share the same carriage
We suffer the weather
We bind and we tether
This nation together
I’m just getting started
And time’s of the essence
I can’t say I’ve made it
But I’d never trade it
They’ve thrown a parade
In my New York
Cheering for me now
Can you hear them cheering for me now

Cheer UP

Light up your place
