On The Sunny Side Of The Street
Dorothy Fields
Jimmy McHugh
International Revue
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
And my worry blew away
When you taught me how to say:
Grab your coat, get your hat
Leave your worry on the door step
Just direct your feet
To the sunny side of the street.
Can't you hear a pitter pat?
And that happy tun 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'll be rich as Rockefeller
Gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street.
