Yes. In the script and the score, it's "nu."

There are no such thing as "official lyrics" online. I don't know one lyric site where songs aren't FULL of mistakes. Don't trust them.

The other problem is something I mentioned earlier as well - the authentic pronunciation of the phrase is "zo nu" (with Yiddish adopting the German pronunciation of an initial s as "z") - I just went back to listen to the original cast, the film, and the Lane/Prince revival, and none of them do it that way, which only adds to the misconception/confusion about the phrase.
