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

I'm a 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 take me down to Main Street and that's where I select my imaginary dish

Standing on the corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on the 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 the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls
Go by

Saturday, and I'm so broke
Haven't got a girl, and that's no joke
Still I'm living like a millionaire
When I take me down to Main Street and I review the harem parading for me there

Standing on the corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on the corner underneath the springtime sky
Brother, you can't go to jail for what you're thinking
Or for the "Woo!" look in your eye
You're only standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls
Go by
