On the Street Where You Live
Vic Damone Lyrics

Oh, the towering feeling just to know somehow you are near

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

I can hear, clearly, every word this great and well-loved singer sings. Beautifully sung, as with every song that Vic Damone recorded. Perfect timing, diction and voice control. Thank you Mr. Damone.

Kevin Balsdon

I agree 100% on 100% on what you said. The problem with his songs are, which is the best song.

The music from this "generation" and "time in history" is so excellent....what a voice, Vic Damone had.....what beautiful music and his mastery of singing it...


What a magical voice! Love this.

This was Vic Damone's last top ten hit. It reached #4 in 1956. The beautiful song from the famous musical charted also in the versions of Edddie Fisher (18/56), Lawrence Welk (96/56) and Andy Williams 28/64).

Jane Ferrara

Incredible, what a voice...


Brings back great memories! Thank you! It has stayed in my brain ever since and often, I'll start singing the words while strolling along on a trail or a walk. Vic Damone was a great singer and very well remembered by all.
