New York Winter  Susan Kane  

 

See how the moon walks on the water

When the winter has frozen her path

See how the moon walks on the water

The tugboats crack the ice just like glass

 

Now winter has come for the Hudson

The George is lighted for the jolly holiday

When winter freezes the Hudson

Her tides run under the ice like a subway

 

Chorus:  Raise a glass to those who came before us  

Raise a glass to those to come

Raise a glass to this bright chorus

Till every song is sung

 

See how the snow flies round the lamppost

Footprints are pressed in the slush

See how the snow flies round the lamppost

As folks bearing gifts homeward rush

 

I want to see you with snow-spangled hair

White as wisdom, white as hope, white as fleece

I want to see you with snow-spangled hair  

Silent night, silver bells, earth at peace

 

Chorus

 

See how the sparks fly up the chimney

Let the fireplace burn hot and bright

See how the sparks fly up the chimney

Cares and cinders disappear in the night

 

The moon says good night to New York City

May you find joy and comfort in your homes

When the moon says good night to New York City

Wanderers rest and no one is alone

 

Chorus
