Come along and listen to the lullaby of Broadway
The hip-hooray and ballyhoo, the lullaby of Broadway
The rumble of the subway train, the rattle of the taxis
The daffodils who entertain at Angelo's and Maxie's

When a Broadway Baby says goodnight, it's early in the morning
Manhattan babies don't sleep tight until the dawn
Goodnight, baby, goodnight, milkman's on his way
Sleep tight, baby, sleep tight, let's call it a day

Come on along and listen to the lullaby of Broadway
The hi-de-hi and boop-boop-buh-doo, the lullaby of Broadway
The band begins to go to town and everyone goes crazy
You rock-a-bye your baby 'round 'til everything gets hazy

Hush-a-bye, I'll gonna buy you this and that you hear your daddy sing
Then baby goes home to her flat to sleep all day
Goodnight, baby, goodnight, milkman's on his way
Sleep tight, baby, sleep tight, let's call it a day

Listen to the lullaby of old Broadway
