Lyrics

South side of your street

Scat
Playing on the southside of your street
Later I’ll get a beer and something to eat
Sun so brutal beating down on my Brow
The dog’s don’t bark, they just lie there like they forgot how

Somebody said that you lived around here
But I never seem to catch you out my Dear

When I’m playing on the southside of your street
Watching paper fly between people’s feet
While they’re walking down the south side of your street ..
Of you street

Dave and George are having a game of chess
George doesn’t know, but it over in three moves or less
Coffee smells good from the corner cafe
Makes people happy so they tip along the way ..

Somebody said that you lived around here
But I never seem to catch you out my Dear

When I’m playing on the southside of your street
Watching paper fly between people’s feet
While they’re walking down the south side of your street ..
Of you street

Piece of paper flies by
Your foot catches it in stride
You pick it up and flash a smile
And decide to stay a while .

Somebody said that you lived around here
And I can’t believe you are standing so near

While I’m playing on the southside of your street
Watching paper fly between people’s feet
While you’re dancing on the south side of your street ..
Of you street
Scat
