Take the “A” Train
, Billy Strayhorn,
You must Take the “A” Train
To go to Sugar Hill 'way up in Harlem.
If you miss the 'A' train
You'll find you've missed the quickest way to Harlem.
Hurry, get on now it's coming
Listen to those rails a thrumming
All 'board! get on the “A” Train
Soon you will be on Sugar Hill in Harlem.
