Easy Street
Julie London Lyrics


Easy street, I'd love to live on easy street
Nobody works on easy street
Just lie around all day, just sit and play the horses

Life is sweet for folks who live on easy street
No weekly payments you must meet
That makes your hair turn gray

When opportunity comes knockin'
You just keep on with your rockin'
'Cause you know your fortune's made

And if the sun makes you perspire
There's a man that you can hire
To plant trees so you can have shade

On easy street, I'm telling everyone I meet
If I could live on easy street I'd want no job today
So please, go 'way

one of the most soothing songs i've ever heard

Jamie George

I work in a music store and our guitar tech plays this so well, its a fantastic tune

William L Robinson

Great rendition done by the one and only Julie London.

Donna Kay

She never thought she was much of a singer... can you believe that?!

Kimmy Queen

Donna Kay She was awesome and humble to boot...

Emily Fletcher

1:55 is such a Billie Holiday phrasing.. you can tell she listened to her quite a bit, yet she still had her own sound.

I bought this album in the mid 70's. Then I found it on CD with "Julie Is Her Name 2" What a find.

oh, bother.
