1. I'll Never go to Macy's (Handel) [sung text checked 1 time]

I’ll Never go to Macy’s
Now came there a stranger to the land of New York.
In the Square of the Herald, bought a hot dog
and visited the House of Macy,
where did a dreadful thing befall him.
And his cry did come to all the people:
I’ll never go the Macy’s anymore.
They’ve got a big policeman at the door.
He grabs you by the collar
And make you pay a dollar.
I’ll never go to Macy’s anymore.
