HARLEM ON PARADE Benny Carter (m) Ray Evans (l) Elton Hill (arr) as rec by Anita O'Day w Gene Krupa & his Orch Jan 23rd 1942 New York In the distance I heard a sound, The sound of marching men; I turned my head to view The drum boy, the bugle boy, and then; Harlem soldiers on the move, See them marching in the groove, Uncle Sam is mighty proud Of Harlem on parade. With a smile they all perform In a full drape uniform; Everybody's here to cheer For Harlem on parade. When you hear the bugle blow, That's the time you're bound to know That the man behind the horn Is as handy with a gun When there's fighting to be done! Every heart within the crowd Beats it out with head unbowed, Uncle Sam is mighty proud Of Harlem on parade. When you hear the bugle blow, That's the time you're bound to know That the man behind the horn Is as handy with a gun When there's fighting to be done! Every heart within the crowd Beats it out with head unbowed, Uncle Sam is mighty proud Of Harlem on parade. (Contributed by Peter Akers - March 2009)
