The Four Lads – Standing On The Corner lyrics

Standing on a corner
Watching all the girls go by
Standing on a corner
Watching all the girls go by

Brother, you don't know
A nicer occupation
Matter of fact
Neither do I

Than standing on a corner
Watching all the girls
Watching all the girls
Watching all the girls go by

I'm the cat
That got the cream
Haven't got a girl
But I can dream

Haven't got a girl
But I can wish
So I'll take me
Down to Main street
And that's where I
Select my imaginary dish

Standing on a corner
Watching all the girls go by
Standing on a corner giving
All the girls the eye

Brother, if you've
Got a rich imagination
Give it a whirl
Give it a try

Try standing on the corner
Watching all the girls
Watching all the girls
Watching all the girls go by

Saturday, and I'm so broke
Haven't got a girl
And that's no joke

Still, I'm living
Like a millionaire
When I take me down
To Main Street and I review
The harem parading for me there

Standing on the corner
Watching all the girls go by
Standing on the corner
Underneath the springtime sky

Brother, you can't
Go to jail for
What you're thinking
Or for that woo
Look in your eye

You'll be standing on the corner
Watching all the girls
Watching all the girls
Watching all the girls go by
