Harlem Night Song
by Langston Hughes


Come,
Let us roam the night together
Singing.


I love you.


Across
The Harlem roof-tops
Moon is shining.
Night sky is blue.
Stars are great drops
Of Golden dew.


Down the street
A band is playing.


I love you.


Come,
Let us roam the night together
Singing.
