My first syllable wears my second; my third might be
What my first would acquire if he went out to sea.
Put together my one, two, three,
And the belle of New York is the girl for me.

Solution An Isle of Joy (this is not Kansas any more) (spoiler) Comment 3 of 3 |
We'll have Manhattan,
The Bronx and Staten
Island too.
It's lovely going through
The zoo.
It's very fancy
On old Delancey
Street, you know.
The subway charms us so
When balmy breezes blow
To and fro.
And tell me what street
Compares with Mott Street
In July?
Sweet pushcarts gently gliding by.
The great big city's a wondrous toy
Just made for a girl and boy.
We'll turn Manhattan
Into an isle of joy. 
By Rodgers and Hart.
There is a Man hat tan in Kansas also.
