The Sunny Side of the Street  

The sunny side is always so much better than the shaded side.

Seen the carnival at Rome
Had the women and I had the booze
All that I can remember now
Is little kids without no shoes

So, I saw that train and I got on it
With a heart full of hate and a lust for vomit
Now I’m walking on the Sunnyside of the street

Stepped over bodies in Bombay
Tried to make it to the USA
Ended up in Nepal
Up on the roof with nothing at all

And I knew that day
I was gonna stay right where I am
On the sunnyside of the street

Been in a palace, I’ve been in a jail
I just don’t want to be reborn a snail
I just want to spend eternity
Right where I am, on the sunnyside of the street

As my mother wept, it was then I swore
To take my life as I would a whore
I know I’m better than before
I will not be reconstructed
Just wanna stay right here
On the sunnyside of the street

The sunnyside of the street
The sunnyside of the street
The sunnyside of the street
