About Standing on the Corner

"Standing on the Corner" is a popular song written by Frank Loesser and published in 1956. It was introduced by Shorty Long, Alan Gilbert, John Henson, and Roy Lazarus in the Broadway musical, The Most Happy Fella. A recording of the song by the Four Lads (made March 1, 1956) was popular in 1956. The recording was released by Columbia Records as catalog number 40674. It first reached the Billboard charts on April 28, 1956. It peaked at No. 3 on each of the various charts at the time: the Disk Jockey chart, the Best Seller chart, the Juke Box chart, as well as the composite chart of the top 100 songs. The flip side was "My Little Angel". Jimmy Arnold, lead tenor for The Four Lads in 1956, is sometimes erroneously listed as the song's co-author. Dean Martin also released a version in 1956, which reached No. 22 on Billboard's chart of Most Played by Jockeys and No. 29 on Billboard's Top 100 chart. A version by The King Brothers became popular in the United Kingdom in 1960 when the musical was staged in London's West End, and the Four Lads' version also made the lower reaches of the UK chart at this point. On February 9, 2010, the Irish group Celtic Thunder released their 4th album entitled It's Entertainment. This album, meant to pay homage to past musical styles, features their youngest member Damian McGinty singing "Standing on the Corner". Celtic Thunder's DVD of the same name features McGinty dressed in a sweater and cabbie performing the number.

Standing on a corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on a corner watching all the girls go by
Brother you don't know a nicer occupation
Matter of fact, neither do I
Than standing on a corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by

I'm the cat that got the cream
Haven't got a girl but I can dream
Haven't got a girl but I can wish
So I'll take me down to Main street
And that's where I select my imaginary dish

Standing on a corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on a corner giving all the girls the eye
Brother if you've got a rich imagination
Give it a whirl, give it a try
Try standing on a corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by

Brother you can't go to jail for what you're thinking
Or for that woo look in your eye
Standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by
