When My Sugar Walks Down the Street

by Gene Austin

Gene Austin (June 24, 1900 – January 24, 1972) was an American singer and songwriter, one of the first "crooners". His 1920s compositions "When My Sugar Walks Down the Street" and "The Lonesome Road" became pop and jazz standards.




When my sugar walks down the street
All the little birdies go tweet, tweet, tweet.
And in the evening when the sun goes down
It's never dark when she's around

She's so affectionate and I'll say this
That when she kisses me I sure stay kissed
When my sugar walks down the street
The little birdies go tweet tweet tweet.
