lyrics

Grabbing up your hats, coats, boots and everything
And leave your worries on the doorstep 'cause we're going by by
Just direct your feet
Cause soon we'll meet
On that sunny side of the street

Can you hear the pitters and the patters
Of the raindrops trickling down them fire escape ladders
Life would be so fine
Fine as, mmm Red Red Wine
I used to walk, walk, walk in the shade
With my blues on parade, Boys
I'm not afraid
It's over, so move on over rover

If I never have one cent
I'll be rich as Rockefeller
With the gold dust at mine
On the sunny side of the street

Grabbing up your hats, coats, boots and everything
And leave your worries on the doorstep 'cause we're going by by
Just direct your feet
Cause you'll look neat
On that sunny side of the street

Can you hear the pitters and the patters
Of the raindrops trickling down them fire escape ladders
Life would be so fine
Fine as, mmm Red Red Wine
Well I used to walkata, walkata, walkata, walkata, walk in the shade
With my blues out on parade, Boys
I'm not afraid
It's over, Cassanova

If I never have one cent
I'll be rich as Rockafeller
With the gold dust at mine
On the sunny
On the shady
On the sunny
Side of the street
