On the Sunny Side Of The Street

  • Walked with no one and talked with no one
    And I had nothing but shadows
    Then one morning you passed
    And I brightened at last
    Now I greet the day and complete the day
    With the sun in my heart
    All my worry blew away
    When you taught me how to say

    Grab your coat and get your hat
    Leave your worry on the doorstep
    Just direct your feet
    To the sunny side of the street
    Can't you hear a pitter-pat?
    And that happy tune is your step
    Life can be so sweet
    On the sunny side of the street

    I used to walk in the shade
    With those blues on parade
    But I'm not afraid
    This Rover crossed over

    If I never have a cent
    I'd be rich as Rockefeller
    Gold dust at my feet
    On the sunny side of the street
    Grab your street Writer/s: Dorothy Fields, Jimmy McHugh
