Get your hat and get your coat
And leave your worries on the doorstep
Yeah, just at your feet
Towards the sunny side of the street

Can't you hear, oh, that pitter-pat
Each happy step is your step
You know life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade
With my blues, blues, blues, blues, blues on parade
But I'm not afraid, no, no, I'm not afraid
Hey Rover, cross over

If I never had a cent
I'd be rich as Rockefeller
The gold dust all around my feet
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade
With my blues, blues, blues, blues on parade
But I'm not afraid, no, no, I'm not afraid
Hey Rover, cross over

Now if I never, never, never, never, never had a cent
Now I'd be rich as Rockefeller
With gold dust all around my feet
On the sunny side of the street, yeah
On the sunny, sunny side of the street, yeah

You better move on Rover on the other side
Hey, now on the sunny, sunny, sunny side of the street, yeah
On the sunny, sunny side of the street
