Billy Strayhorn – Take The "A" Train lyrics

Take the "A" train

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.

- Billy Strayhorn
