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

Brother, you can't go to jail for what you're thinking
Or for that woo look in your eye
Standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by
Go by, go by
