“42nd Street” (1933)
"42nd Street" (1933) was written for the movie musical of the same name. The movie was made into a Broadway musical in 1980; it's often revived these days on the "New 42nd Street."

The song is from the great songwriting team of Harry Warren (composer) and Al Dubin (lyrics).

The song is still under copyright protection, but some of the lyrics tell you to "Come and meet those dancing feet."
