Listen The city is singin' its night song A city of shadows and fading starlight Mixed with bar light Listen The empty streets echo the right song A melody I used to think was only for the Lonely Night song I hear you Now as the night disappears But this time Your blues
Is music to my ears The rumble of the train The rustle of the wind The rhythm of the footsteps The blarin' of a horn The murmur of a voice The echo of a siren Night song!
You used to find me cryin' in my beer Now you remind me tomorrow she'll be here She'll be here! Oh, night song You sing of a train from New Orleans And deep in the music I hear her hummin' Now she's coming home! The city is singin' its night song Listen
