    (Jack) Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Glory Halle...
    (Johnny) What's all that noise?
    (Jack) Hallelujah!
    (Johnny) Don't give up with that now
    (Jack) Glory Halle...
    (Johnny) Who's that over in the corner?
    (Jack) Hallelujah!
    (Johnny) I believe that's Mr. Teagarden.
    Hey what you doin' up there, Man?
    Last time I saw you you were sayin' fare thee well to Harlem
    (Jack) I done bin wise g'wine an' I ain't g'wine there n'more
    (Johnny) You sho' come back the right time it's Christmas up here
    (Jack) What d'ya mean up here, it's Christmas ev'rywhere
    (Johnny) Yeah, but it ain't all Christmas like it's Christmas in
    Harlem
    (Jack) No?

    (Sung)
    (Johnny) Ev'ry gal struttin' with her beau
    Through the streets covered white with snow
    Happy smiles er'ywhere you go
    Christmas night in Harlem

    (Jack) Black and tans feelin' mighty good
    In that old coloured neighbourhood
    Here and now be it understood
    Christmas night in Harlem

    (Johnny) Ev'ryone is gonna sit up
    Until after three
    Ev'ryone will be all lit up
    Like a Christmas tree

    (Jack) Come on now ev'ry coal black Joe
    You just lead me t'the mistletoe
    With a kiss and a hi-de-ho
    Christmas night in Harlem

    (Spoken)
    (Johnny) Hee Hee, man, Dog, what'd Santa Claus leave in
    your stockin'?
    (Jack) Let me see, there's an orange, a jar o' ???? and
    Man, look at this slide trombone
    (Johnny) Yeah, but it might not sound so pretty, let me hear
    you tune it

    (Sung)
    (Jack) Mr Mercer, I'm glad to be
    Back in this festivity
    (Johnny) Ah, you said it Mr T
    It's Christmas night in Harlem
    (Jack) Well it's Christmas night in Harlem
    Man, you drew the ??????
