MANHATTAN LULLABY

Lulled by rumble babble beep

Let these little children sleep

Let these city girls and boys

Dream a music in the noise

Hear a tune their city plucks

Up from buses up from trucks

Up from engines wailing fire

Up ten stories high and higher

Up from hammers rivets drills

Up tall buildings over sills

Up where city children sleep

Lulled by rumble babble beep

Late last night

Late last night

I lay in bed

Driving buses

In my head
