Sunny Side of the Street

I wake up most every morning
Head into town, yes I'm city bound in the usual way
I'm walking on down the street
Struttin' up the avenue to check out the scene
The family and the people you meet
Walkin' up the sunny side of the street

When I was just a little young boy
My momma told me, you can do what you like
But you won't get there for free
I think you got something up your sleeve, boy
That's a good thing, brother, and I'm happy to see
You're walkin' up the sunny side of the street

You can plant the seeds of loving, peace, and kindness
But don't analyze or criticize
Yourself, and what you don't understand
You've got to let it grow, my friend

The sun and moon and stars above
The rainbow flower child of love
Hair down, singing loud, say it like you mean it
'Cuz you know it and believe it the truth it plain
You'll see it, and You've got to let it grow, my friend...

Gotta let it grow, gotta let it show
I knew a girl who let her hair hang way down low
You couldn't see her eyes, or the way her lovelight shined
I knew a boy from down in Mexico
With greasy hair and dirty toes, he looked way down low
You couldn't see his eyes, or the way his lovelight shined
You've got to let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
I hope it shines your way...

I think that I know what your feeling
Afraid to be all alone
Afraid that you're growing older
Afraid that you just don't know

Sometimes you're afraid of the noise and the laughter
Sometimes you're afraid that your story's been told
Sometimes you're afraid that no one will listen
You need to be heard, you need to be heard

You need to be heard, you need to be heard
You will not die having gone unnoticed in this world
I will not die having gone unnoticed in this world


I wake up most every morning
Head into town, yes I'm city bound in the usual way
I'm walking on down the street
Struttin' up the avenue to check out the scene
The family and the people you meet
Walkin' up the sunny side of the street
