Für einen Roman in und über Harlem spielt die Musik in Afro-6 eine geringe Rolle. Man muß sie suchen und auch dann stoßt man auf eher untypische Musik.

Moon over Miami
Shine on my love and me
So we can stroll beside the roll
Of the rolling sea
Moon over Miami
Shine on as we begin
A dream or two that may come true
When the tide comes in
Hark to the song of the smiling troubadours
Hark to the throbbing guitars
Hear how the waves offer thunderous applause
After each song to the stars
Moon over Miami
You know we're waiting for
A little love, a little kiss
On Miami shore

  When it's springtime in the Rockies
I am coming back to you
Little sweetheart of the mountains
With your bonny eyes of blue
Once again I'll say I love you
While the birds sing all the day
When it's springtime in the Rockies
In the Rockies, far away

S. 168 Beat Me, Daddy, Eight to the Bar (Don Raye, Hughie Prince, Eleanor Sheehy)
  "Eight to the Bar" bezeichnet einen Boogie Woogie Stil, bei dem der Klavierspieler 8 Beats mit der linken Hand pro Bar (sich rhythmisch wiederholende Phrase der rechten Hand) spielt.
In a little honky-tonky village in Texas
There's a guy who plays the best piano by far
He can play piano any way that you like it
But the way he likes to play is eight to the bar
When he plays, it's a ball
He's the daddy of them all

The people gather around when he gets on the stand
Then when he plays, he gets a hand
The rhythm he beats puts the cats in a trance
Nobody there bothers to dance
But when he plays with the bass and guitar
They holler out, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

A-plink, a-plank, a-plink plank, plink plank
A-plunkin' on the keys
A-riff, a-raff, a-riff raff, riff raff
A-riffin' out with ease
And when he plays with the bass and guitar
They holler out, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

He plays a boogie, he plays eight to the bar
A boogie-woogie, that is the way he likes to play on his piano
And we all know
That when he plays he puts them all in a trance
The cats all holler "Hooray"
You'll hear them say, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

In a little honky-tonky village in Texas
There's a guy who plays the best piano by far
When he plays with the bass and guitar
They holler, "Beat me up Daddy, beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

The people gather around when he gets up on the stand
Then when he plays, he gets a hand
The rhythm that he plays puts the cats in a trance
Nobody there ever bothers to dance
But when he plays with the bass and guitar
They holler out, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

A-plink plink, a-plank plank, a-plink plank, plink plank
A-plunkin' on the keys
A-riff riff, a-raff raff, a-riff raff, riff raff
A-riffin' out with ease
But when he plays with the bass and guitar
They holler out, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar"

Textvariante

In a dinky honky tonky village in Texas,
There's a guy who plays the best piano by far,
He can play piano any way that you like it,
But the style he likes the best is eight to the bar,
When he plays, it's a ball
He's the daddy of them all

Refrain
The people gather around when he gets on the stand,
Then, when he plays, he gets a hand,
The rhythm he beats puts the cats in a trance,
Nobody there bothers to dance,
But, when he jams with the bass and guitar,
They holler: "Aw, beat me daddy, eight to the bar."

A plink, a plank, a plink, plank, plink, plank,
Plunkin' on the keys
A riff, a raff, a riff, raff, riff, raff,
Riffin' out with ease,
And when he jams with the bass and guitar,
They holler: "Aw, beat me daddy, eight to the bar."
