Harlem Nocturne

1939 – Earle Hagen / Dick Rogers

Deep music fills the night

Deep in the heart of Harlem

And though the stars are bright

The darkness is taunting me

Oh what a sad refrain

A nocturne born in Harlem

That melancholy strain

Forever is haunting me

The melody clings

Around my heart strings

It won’t let me go when I’m lonely

I hear it in dreams

And somehow it seems

It makes me weep

And I can’t sleep

An indigo tune

It sings to the moon

The lonesome refrain of a lover

The melody sighs

It laughs and it cries

A moan in blue that wails the long night through
