Wonderful Town – Christopher Street lyrics

On your right, Washington Square
Right in the heart of Greenwich Village
My, what trees, smell that air
Painters and pigeons in Washington Square

On your left, Waverly place
Bit of paree in Greenwich Village
My, what charm, my, what grace
Poets and peasants on Waverly place

Here you see Christopher Street
Typical spot in Greenwich Village
Ain’t it quaint, ain’t it sweet
Pleasant and peaceful on Christopher Street?

Here is home, Christopher Street
Right in the heart of Greenwich Village
Life is calm, life is sweet
Pleasant and peaceful on Christopher Street

Here’s a famous village type
Mr. Appopolous, modern painter
Better known on this beat
As the lovable landlord of Christopher Street

Here’s a guy known as the wreck
Football professional out of season
Unemployed throughout the heat
Living on nothing on Christopher Street

Here is yet another type
Everyone knows the famous violet
Nicest gal you’d ever meet
Steadily working on Christopher Street

Life is gay, life is sweet
Interesting people on Christopher Street
Such interesting people live on Christopher Street
Such interesting people live on Christopher Street

Such interesting people live on Christopher Street
Such interesting people live on Christopher Street
Such interesting people live on Christopher Street
Look, look, poets, actors, dancers, writers

Here we live, here we love
This is the place for self-expression
Life is mad, life is sweet
Greenwich Village! Greenwich Village! Whee!

Such interesting people live on Christopher Street
Such interesting people live on Christopher Street

Here we live, here we love
This is the place for self-expression
Life is mad, life is sweet
Interesting people living on Christopher Street
