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.

(Interlude 1)

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 a corner watching all the girls.
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by.

(Interlude 2)

Saturday and I'm so broke
Couldn't buy a gal a nickel coke.
Still I'm livin' like a millionaire
When I take me down to Main Street
And I survey the harem parading for me there.

Standing on a corner watching all the girls go by,
Standing on a corner giving all the girls the eye.
Brother you can't go to jail for what you're thinking,
Or for that woo look in your eye;
You're only standing on the corner watching all the girls,
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by.
