"On the street where I live..."


(Lifted from the song from My Fair Lady...Perry Como's version... Trina and I found Mr. Bookman selling books on the sidewalk again. :-))

"I have often walked down this street before.
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before.
All at once am I several stories high,
Knowing I'm on the street where you live.

Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?
[ Find more Lyrics on ]
Does enchantment pour out of every 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 nowhere 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."


  1. Wow! I hope I could find a vendor here in Davao peddling or displaying books like that man. Naiiba siya. :)

  2. My husband used to sing this to me whenever he'd visit me at my home, when we were still dating. Thanks for bringing me back to those lovely days with this song =)

  3. @Frances: aww...that is so cute! He must be such a crooner...

    @purplepomelo: Hi, thanks for the hop. Mr. Bookman shows up every few days or so with a new batch of books. They sell things cheap-er, but still these books are great finds. It's like BookSale..but on the street. :-)
