Lullaby of Broadway

Written by: Harry Warren / Al Dubin

 

Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Broadway
The hip-hooray and ballyhoo
The lullaby of Broadway
The rumble of the subway train
The rattle of the taxis
The daffydills who entertain
At Angeloís and Maxiís

When a Broadway baby says goodnight
Itís early in the morning
Manhattan babies donít sleep tight
Until the dawn

Mm, goodnight Baby
Goodnight
The milkmanís on his way
Sleep tight Baby
Sleep tight
Letís call it a day
Hey

The band begins to go to town
And everythingís gettin crazy
You rock-a-bye your baby round
Til everything gets hazy
Hush a-bye
Iíll buy you this and that
You hear her daddy sayiní
And baby goes home to her flat
To sleep all day

So goodnight
Mm, baby
Goodnight
The milkmanís on his way
Sleep tight
Baby
Sleep tight
Letís call it a day

Hey listen to
The lullaby of old
Broadway
Swinginí down Broadway
Mmm, Broadway yeah
