Lyrics

Want, want, what do I want?
Ever since I was a little girl there's only been one thing I want
I want, I want what every little red-blooded girl in America could want
I want, I want what I have wanted since the first day I learned how to want

I want to be a Rockette
I want to dance until dawn
I want to be a Rockette
That's what my heart is set upon

I want to be a Rockette
I want to hear the crowd roar
I wanna feel
The magic when they scream for more and more and more and more

I never wanted to be somebody's wife
a suburban life seems a pity
I never wanted to be a movie star
I always wanted to be a dancer at Radio City

I want to be a Rockette
and it's no surprise
I want to be a Rockette
Oh how my foot is gonna rise
I want to be a Rockette
And it's one thing I know
And when I'm a Rockette I'll never miss one show one show one show one show

I never wanted to be a Broadway star
Being famous has too many duties
I never wanted to be a ballet star
I always wanted to be
One of those dazzling dancing beauties

I'll always remember when mama brought me to New York
And I first saw those girls up on that stage
There was magic everywhere
'Look at them, mama' I said
One of these days, your little girl's gonna be up there
I'm gonna be up there!

I wanna be a Rockette
Let me out on that stage
I wanna be a Rockette
They are the greatest dancers of our age

I gonna be a Rockette
I gonna hear the crowd scream
I'm gonna know the feeling of getting my dream

And that is my dream
To know how it feels
To be someone who's free to kick up her heels

It's what I was meant to be
You gotta take me
Gotta take me
Gotta take me
Gotta take me
Gotta take me
Gotta take me
Gotta take me
Me

Trivia

  • The song is from Kicks: The Showgirl Musical.[1] Though the musical never made it past the workshop stages, individual numbers, like this song, are often performed in concert.[2]
