See the people walkin' up and down
See the people movin' all around
On the streets of my hometown on Yonge Street
Longest street in the world they say
Summertime soon slips away
I hope I'll see you one fine day on Yonge Street
Everywhere you go in a city by the lake
Back there in the flow you may give a hand a shake
Everyone you pass seems to wanna say hello
Even late at night on the freshly fallen snow

See the children jumpin' all around
See the parents looking up and down
Upon the streets of my hometown on Yonge Street
It's a mean street if you choose
It's a lean street when you lose
An in-between street when you cruise on Yonge Street

Everywhere you go in a city by the lake
You'll be sure and find it's a case of give and take
Everyone you pass seems to want to say hello
Even late at night when the streets are all aglow

It's the longest street in the world
With the most feet in the world
Another street where boy meets girl on Yonge Street
See the people walkin' up and down
See the people movin' all around
Those are the streets of my hometown on Yonge Street

Everywhere you walk people almost say hello
Even late at night when the streets are all aglow

On Yonge Street
On Yonge Street
