Hills OBrooklyn

Flow on river, flow with the flood tide

Ebb with the ebb tide, frolic on

Throw out questions, throw out answers

Suspend, here and everywhere



Stand up, beautiful hills of Brooklyn

Sound out, voice of young men

Stand up, beautiful hills of Brooklyn

Loudly call me by my nighest name


Fly on seabirds, fly on sideways

Or wheel in large circles in the air

Come on ships, from the lower bay

Pass up or down white-sailed




Flaunt way, flags of all nations

Burn your fires all you foundries

Thrive cities thrive, bring your freight

Bring your shows

Expand, expand, expand
