On the Street Where You Live (1956)
(w) Alan Jay Lerner (m) Frederick Loewe (I) Musical: My Fair Lady by John Michael King (P) Vic Damone
I have often walked down this street before
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before
All at once am I sev’ral stories high
Knowing I’m on the street where you live
Are there lilacs trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town
Does enchantment pour out of ev’ry door
No, it’s just on the street where you live

And, oh, the towering feeling just to know somehow you are near
The overpowering feeling that any second
You may suddenly appear
People stop and stare, they don’t bother me
For there’s no where else on earth that I would rather be
Let the time go by, I won’t care if I
Can be here on the street where you live
