There's a party in Harlem
Come on

I like to reminisce about that night we kissed
It was somewhere one night in Harlem
The nights were hot and bright
You could treat your honey right
'Cause Sylvia's would burn all night

The people there were really something
The music always kept us jumping
And it used to knock me down
When Smokey came to town
My favorite song was "Tears Of The Clown"

There ain't nothing like them nights in Harlem
They really shake the funk up there
Tonight I'm gonna stomp in Harlem
And I'm gonna take my baby back to the heart of Harlem

Big sister had a group
And they'd sit out on the stoop
And Lordy could they harmonize
My cousin Joe could blow just like the radio
And he used to drove them "B" girls wild

But when grandma started happy dancing
She really turned the mother out
I like the way they do it up in Harlem
When there's a party up in Harlem
That's what it's all about

Ain't nothing like them nights in Harlem
They never fake the funk up there
I met my Cherie Amour in Harlem
And tonight I'm gonna take her back to the 'pollo

There's a party in Harlem
They say that all the stars will be there
Everyone is going to Harlem
Harlem is a party and everybody's going there

Follow me visually 'cause I usually be all around
Originallly everybody headed uptown
Finessing the fly way, you cruisin' in your car
On the West Side to the highway, East Side D-are

And yes, we are about to set it, forget it, I thought you knew
The Apollo is where I had to go with my crew
From bmw's to my daddy's Cadillac
He had the sunroof top with the diamond in the back

Check the ambiance, the place a renaissance
Who frontin' nonchallant up in the restaurant
What you really really want, we grabbin' by the clutch
Precise can flaunt with this and never too much

It's such a love flow, high but natural
The thug's a no show, and drugs a no no
The only thing that they was shootin' was pool
While Harlem nights was right and party was cool

Nothing like them nights in Harlem
They really shake the funk up there
Tonight I'm gonna stomp in Harlem
I'm gonna take my baby back to the heart of Harlem

Nights in Harlem
They never fake the funk up there
I met my Cherie Amour in Harlem
Tonight I'm gonna take her back to the Harlem Apollo

Nights in Harlem
They don't let you fake the funk up there
Tonight I'm gonna stomp in Harlem
I'm gonna take my honey back to the Harlem Apollo

Nights in Harlem
They really shake the funk up there
Tonight I'm gonna stomp in Harlem
I'm gonna take my baby back to the Harlem Apollo
