Take The "A" Train
Duke Ellington & His Orchestra Lyrics

You must take the "A" train
To go 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

My favorite version of this is the one in black and white, where they are on the train and the woman sings
Hurry hurry hurry take the A train
To get to Sugarhill way up in Harlem
If you should take the A-a-a train
You'll get to where you're going in a hurry.
Hurry hurry hurry now it's coming
Can't you hear the bells-a humming
dubably obbb bob
If you should miss the A-a-a train
You'll miss the quickest way to get to Harlem.
