Christmas Night In Harlem
Written by Mitchell Parish / Raymond Scott
Arrangement by Mike Davis
Performed by Dandy Wellington and His Band

lyrics

Every gal's struttin' with her beau
Through the streets covered white with snow
Happy smiles everywhere you go
It's Christmas night in Harlem
People all feelin' mighty good
In that good old neighborhood
Here and now be it understood
It's Christmas night in Harlem
Everyone is gonna sit up
Until after three
Everyone will all be lit up
Like a Christmas tree
Aw, come on now every Jane and Joe
Greet you sweet 'neath the mistletoe
With a kiss and a hi-de-ho
Christmas night in Harlem

Everyone is gonna sit up
Until after three
Everyone will be all lit up
Like a Christmas tree
Come on now every Jane and Joe
Greet you sweet 'neath the mistletoe
With a kiss and a hi-de-ho
Christmas night in Harlem

T'was the night before Christmas and all through the town 
The rhythm was rockin a merry old sound 
Hep cats were yowling through horn of good cheer
While folks raise a toast to the up coming year.

Merry Christmas to you and yours
Never stop dreaming folk
For dreams can come true
Christmas night in Harlem
