autobiography: That Lucky Old Son

Grab your coat, get your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Just direct your feet over
To the sunny side of the street

Can't you hear pitter pat
That happy tune is your step
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade
With all those blues on parade
But now I'm not afraid 'cause
I'm a rover who's crossed over

If I never have a cent
Gonna be as rich as Rockfeller
Gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street
