Take the "a" Train
Anita O'Day Lyrics


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 up now, it's coming
Listen to those rails a'hummin'
All board, get on the "A" train
Soon you will be on Sugar Hill in Harlem

Sa veef a deef
Leet doveef an'dassan
Deepandassan day
Doia dey'tn day

Veef sa'va veva dabbadey
Dada deutn'datn deitn deu doo

Hurry, get up now, it's coming
Listen to those rails a'hummin'
All board, get on the "A" train
Soon you will be in Sugar Hill in Harlem

"A" train, "A" train, "A" train

she later admitted she was high during that "jazz on a summer's day"' performance--she had no idea it was to be filmed
