about

I also wrote this song at the request of the Principal of the Harborview School,Carol Mongiello, so the kids could better understand the practical/economic role the Staten Island Ferry plays in New York Harbor.

WHO DO YOU SEE ON THE STATEN ISLAND FERRY
© Bob Wright

Who do you see
on the Staten Island Ferry?
Who do you see
on the Staten Island Ferry?
Who do you see
on the Staten Island Ferry?
When you’re crossing New York Harbor

I see the Captain
on the Staten Island ferry
I see the Captain
on the Staten Island ferry
I see the Captain
on the Staten Island ferry
When I’m crossing New York Harbor

Tell us who you see who you see
Tell us who you see who you see (clapclap)
Tell us who you see who you see
Tell us who you see who you see(clapclap)
Tell us who you see who you see
Tell us who you see who you see (clapclap)
on the Staten Island Ferry

I see the crew
on the Staten Island Ferry
I see the crew
on the Staten Island Ferry
I see the crew
on the Staten Island Ferry
When I’m crossing New York Harbor

Tell us who you see who you see
Tell us who you see who you see (clapclap)
Tell us who you see who you see
Tell us who you see who you see(clapclap)
Tell us who you see who you see
Tell us who you see who you see (clapclap)
on the Staten Island Ferry

I see commuters
on the Staten Island ferry
I see commuters
on the Staten Island ferry
I see commuters
on the Staten Island ferry
When I’m crossing New York Harbor

Tell us who you see who you see
Tell us who you see who you see (clapclap)
Tell us who you see who you see
Tell us who you see who you see(clapclap)
Tell us who you see who you see
Tell us who you see who you see (clapclap)
on the Staten Island Ferry

I see tourists
on the Staten Island ferry
I see tourists
on the Staten Island ferry
I see tourists
on the Staten Island ferry
When I’m crossing New York Harbor

thats who I see
on the Staten Island Ferry
thats who I see
on the Staten Island Ferry
thats who I see
on the Staten Island Ferry
When I’m crossing New York Harbor

about

Bob Wright/ Harbortown New York, New York

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
