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

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 
This Rover crossed over

If I never have a cent
I'd be rich as Rockefeller 
Gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street 
Grab your street
