on the sunny side of the street

Our house and drive face north and neighbors across the street face south. It's as if they've jumped ahead to spring! I was describing this to my Florida friend Beth who couldn't quite believe it. See for yourself:

I remember this song from my childhood, but I doubt my kids do!

Grab your coat and get your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Just direct your feet
to the sunny side of the street.
Can't you hear a pitter-pat
and that happy tune is your step
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street.

On the Sunny Side of the Street by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields, 1930.

Sounding old, Barb. Quoting songs from 1930???
BTW, down here, every side of the street is the sunny side! We have daffodils!!! And trees are budding.

Well. My MOM sang it to me! Pluck a daffodil for me. I have faith ours are on the way!

Love Willie (and Ohio's quirkiness!)

I liked Willie's rendition best. Benny Goodman was instrumental, Nat King Cole was hard to understand and Doris Day was cheesey!
