On the Sunny Side of the Street — Louis Armstrong

On the Sunny Side of the Street -- Louis Armstrong

Grab your coat, grab your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Just direct your feet
On 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, baby
My Rover’s crossed over

If I never have a cent
I’d be rich as Rockefeller
With gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street

Grab your coat, get your hat
Leave your worry on the doorstep
Just direct your feet
On the sunny side of the street

Can’t you hear a pitter-pat?
Oh, the happy tune is your step
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade
Baby, with those blues on parade
Oh, but I’m not afraid, baby
My rover, my rover crossed over

And if I never have a cent
I’ll be rich as Rockefeller
With gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street
