I’II tell u why I really love living in New York/ Harlem,

    I like to see the nice green trees when I wake up, 

    It’s looks good in the morning time I love looking at the sun ,

    the moon for long periods of time, it makes me feel good.

    When I be walking pass Dunkin’ Donuts 

    I be feeling very hungry.

    Even when walking by the streets of 125th

    I can listen to the tune of music 

    Hip hop, blues, and jazz

    where the people are dancing in the streets.

    Walking through the Apollo Theatre 

    where famous musicians changed the music industry.

    Makes me feel that I am in the right neighborhood where I am around

    By talented artists such as the Jackson 5 and the whole crew of Motown records.
