[Vanessa: Verse 1]
    D                      A
The elevated train by my window
                   D
Doesn't faze me anymore
                               G
The rattling screams don't disrupt 
my dreams
        F#m             G
It's a lullaby, in its way
     D                      A
The elevated train drives everyone 
insane
    D                G
But I don't mind, oh no
         D             
When I bring back boys 
            G
they can't tolerate the noise
             D   
And that's okay, 
          F#m            G
'cause I never let them stay

[Chorus 1]
         G
And one day, 
I'm hoppin' that elevated
  A                    D
train and I'm riding away!
             A    D
It won't be long now!

[Vanessa: Verse 2]
     D                  
The boys around the way 
        A
holler at me when
                       D
I'm walking down the street
          G
Their machismo pride doesn't 
break my stride—
        F#m                 G
It's a compliment, so they say
     D                         A
The boys around the way holler at 
me every
        D                G
day but I don't mind, oh no
       D                     G
If I'm in the mood, it will not 
be with some dude
        F#m
Who is whistling 'cause 
he has nothing to
 G
say
Or who's honking at me 
               F#m
from his Chevrolet!

[Chorus 2]
         G     
And one day... 
                        A
I'm hoppin' in a limousine
                 D
and I'm driving away!
             A    D
It won't be long now!

[Usnavi, Benny, Sonny: Verse 3]
G
  Oh snap! Who’s that?
G
Don't touch me, I'm too hot! Yes!
G
Qué pasó? Here I go!
G          A
So dope! Y tu lo sabes!
G
  No pare // Sigue sigue!
G
  Did you see me? // Freaky freakit!
G               A
What a way to begin the weekend
G                    A
Sonny, anything you want is free, 
man!
G
  And my dearly beloved 
  Dominican Republic, 
  I haven't forgotten you!
A                      
 Gonna see this honey, 
               F#m
 make a little money, 
 and one day, I'll hop Jet Blue!
G
 But until that fateful day, 
 I'm grateful
         A
I got a destination
G
  I'm runnin' to make it home
                           A
And home's what Vanessa's runnin' 
away from!
G
  I'm runnin' to make it home
                           A
And home's what Vanessa's runnin' 
away from...

[Vanessa: Verse 4]
      D                
The neighborhood salon 
         A
is the place I am
                 D
working for the moment
      G
As I cut their hair, 
ladies talk and share
      F#m                       G
Every day, who's doin' who and why...
      D                         A
The neighborhood salon doesn't pay 
me what
             D                 G
I wanna be making but I don't mind
      G
As I sweep the curb I 
can hear those turbo
         F#m                         G
engines blazing a trail through the sky

[Outro]
       G                  
I look up and think about 
               F#m
the years gone by
         G                  A  
But one day—I'm walkin' to JFK 
               Bm
and I'm gonna fly!
    A        G
It won't be long now!
Bm  A   D
   Any day...
