Nat King Cole - On the street where you live
Tekst: Alan Jay Lerner / Muziek: Frederick Loewe
(1964)






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 nowhere 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



People stop and stare
They don’t bother me
For there’s nowhere 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
