Carmen McRae

Carmen Mercedes McRae (April 8, 1920 – November 10, 1994) was an American jazz singer, composer, pianist, and actress. Considered one of the most influential jazz vocalists of the 20th century, it was her behind-the-beat phrasing and her ironic interpretations of song lyrics that made her memorable. McRae drew inspiration from Billie Holiday, but established her own distinctive voice. She went on to record over 60 albums, enjoying a rich musical career, performing and recording in the United States, Europe, and Japan. more »

When the town is fast a-sleep, and it's mid-night in the sky, 
That's the time the fes-tive chink starts to wink his oth-er eye, 
Starts to wink his dream-y eye, la-zi-ly you'll hear him sigh. 

Strang-ers ta-king in the sights, pig-tails fly-ing here and there. 
See that brok-en wall street sport, still thinks he's a mil-lion-aire. 
Still thinks he's a mil-lion-aire, pipe dreams ban-ish ev-'ry care. 

Chi-na-town, my Chi-na-town 
Where the lights are low, 
Hearts that know no oth-er land, 
Drift-ing to and fro. 
Dream-y dream-y Chi-na-town, 
Al-mond eyes of brown, 
Hearts seems light and life seems bright, 
In dream-y Chi-na-town
