Nat King Cole – On The Street Where You Live Lyrics

(alan lerner, frederick loewe)

I have often walked

Down the street before,

But the pavement always

Stayed beneath my feet before.

All at once am i

Several stories high,

Knowing I’m on the street where you live.

Are there lilac trees

In the heart of town?

Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?

Does enchantment pour

Out of every door?

No, it’s just on the street where you live.

And oh, the towering feeling

Just to know somehow you are near

The overpowering feeling

That any second you may suddenly appear.

People stop and stare

They don’t bother me,

For there’s no where else on earth

That I would rather be.

Let the time go by,

I won’t care if i

Can be here on the street where you live.

~interlude~

People stop and stare

They don’t bother me,

For there’s no where else on earth

That I would rather be.

Let the time go by

I won’t care if i

Can be here on the street where you live,

Let me be on the street where you live.
