Em'ralds in my bracelets, diamonds in my rings
A riviera chateau and a lot of other things
And I'm blue, so blue am I
Lots of ready money in seven diff'rent banks
I counted up this morning, it was 'bout a million francs
And I'm blue, so blue, and I know why

I've got harlem on my mind
And I'm longin' to be lowdown
And my "parlez-vous" will not ring true
With harlem on my mind

I've been dined and I've been wined
But I'm headin' for a showdown
'Cause I can't go on from night to dawn
With harlem on my mind

I go to supper with a french marquis
Each evening after the show
My lips begin to whisper "mon cheri"
But my heart keeps singin' "hi-de-ho"

I've become too damned refined
And at night I hate to go down
To that high-falutin' flat that lady mendel designed
With harlem on my mind

I've got harlem on my mind
And I'm longing to be lowdown
And my "parlez-vous" will not ring true
With harlem on my mind

I've been dined and I've been wined
But sure as your born I'm headin' for a showdown
'Cause I can't go on from night to dawn
With harlem on my mind

And when I'm bathing in my marble tub
Each evening after the show
I get to thinkin' 'bout that cotton club
And my heart starts chirping "hi-de-ho"

Help me

I've been too damned refined
And at night I hate to go down
To that flat with fifty million frenchmen taggin' behind
With harlem on my mind
