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 on board, it's coming
Listen to those rails a-thrumming
All aboard, get on that "A" train
Soon you will be on Sugar Hill in Harlem

You must, you must take that "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 get to Harlem

Oh hurry, well, get on board, it's coming
Can't you hear those rails a-thrumming?
All aboard that "A" train
Soon you'll be on Sugar Hill in Harlem

When I'm in New York City, I go see theater
I love N-Y T-shirts, say they love me too
Ha, ha, and maybe I'll hit the shops on old 5th Avenue
I go sight-seeing, I go see Miss Liberty

Wicked, rent to Legally Blonde
Hairspray, these are my favorite plays
New York, start spreading the news
This is where I'm meant to be

Around there's so much to see
In New York City
May we a'leave it to the "A" train
To go to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem, yeah

Hurry, get on board, get on board, it's coming
Can't you hear those rails a-thrumming?
All aboard that "A" Train
Soon you'll be on Sugar Hill in Harlem, yeah
