Chant another song of Harlem.

Not about the wrong of Harlem.

But the worthy throng of Harlem. 

Proud that they belong to Harlem.

They, the overblamed in Harlem.

Need not be ashamed of Harlem.

All is not ill-famed in Harlem.

The devil, too, is tamed, in Harlem. 

                                           - Anonymous, circa 1925
