Lyrics

NEW YORK WINTER © SUSAN KANE 2011 BMI

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
