LETRA DE ON THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET

Grab your coat and get your hat
Leave your worry on the doorstep
Just direct your feet
To the sunny side of the street

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 now I’m not afraid
This rover crossed over

If I’d never have a cent
I’d be rich as Rockefeller
Going to set my feet
On the sunny side of the street

Grab your coat and get your hat
Leave your worry on the doorstep
Just direct your feet
To the sunny side of the street

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 now I’m not afraid
This rover crossed over

If I’d never have a cent
I’d be rich as Rockefeller
With going to set my feet
On the sunny side of the street
