Hot night, Spanish Harlem

of your blue window

and i hope it all come easy

i hope it all feels right

a dozen different candles

when i go, i hope that you will

want me back again and I

Chorus 2:

And i hope that when we go 

they'll take us some place good

We can all be kings

in common neighborhoods

and i hope we live together

the daughter and the son

and i hope they take me in

when my work upon this earth is done
