Langston Hughes - Juke Box Love Song

I could take the Harlem night
and wrap around you,
Take neon lights and make a crown,
Take Lenox Avenue busses,
Taxis, subways,
And for your love song tone their rumble down.
Take Harlem's heartbeat,
Make a drumbeat,
Put it on record, let it whirl,
And while we listen to it play,
Dance with you till day-
Dance with you, my sweet brown Harlem girl.
