Shots rang out from the joint next door
A woman screams on the upper floor
The footsteps thunder down the fire escape
Sirens coming closer
Might be too late
Opera spills out a neighbors window
Just across the avenue
Hear the heartbeat
Of the urban jungle
It seems to play a rhapsody in blue

The thought of sinking, don't be afraid
That's the sound of the street serenade
It's one big circus
Here on parade
It keeps on jammin'
A street serenade

A chorus of horns
In a traffic jam
Jack hammers roar
Like they don't give a damn
Someone wailing on a bottleneck guitar
Comes blasting out of a gay bar
A lonely trumpet
Down the boulevard
Plays an homage to restless souls
The rhythm of tires
Over pot holes
And in the distance
A church bell tolls

Thousand whistles
And not on our neighbors
Plays it's part in the
Street serenade
The echoes of prayers
From a holy crusade
Heading up town for the
Street serenade, yea

If you're new in town
Don't be afraid
That's the sound of the street serenade
It's one big circus
In a long parade
That keeps on jammin'
A street serenade

Some people sayin'
It's a sea of noise
But they don't hear
The unheard music
Hidden in the sky
(Hidden in the sky)
It's a symphony
Come on

A symphony (huh?)
It's a symphony
