On The Street Where You Live
by My Fair Lady

When she mentioned how her aunt
Bit off the spoon, she completely done me in
And my heart went on a journey to the moon
When she told about her father and the gin
And I never saw a more enchanting farce
Than the moment when she shouted, "Move your bloomin'"

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?
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

This song will always remind me of my parents. My mother and father and us kids would gather around the piano every once in a while and sing songs (and show tunes were always my parents' favorites). My mother would play the piano, and beg my shy father to come and sing with us (he has a gorgeous voice, even now at 88). But this song in particular is so good - the lyrics, the soaring melody - just so beautiful to listen to, and wonderful to sing as well!

I sang this song to my dad when he was lost in the disease of Alzheimer’s. I sang this to him as he died . He always responded in some way. He was a true romantic and recognized this song right up to the end. I’m glad I watched all these old films with my parents.
