The 59th Street Bridge Song
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobblestones
Looking for fun and feeling groovy
Ba da-da da-da da-da, feeling groovy

Hello lamppost, what'cha knowing
I've come to watch your flowers growin'
Ain't you got no rhymes for me?
Doo-ait-n-doo-doo, feeling groovy
Ba da-da da-da da-da, feeling groovy

I got no deeds to do, no promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
Life, I love you, all is groovy

Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobblestones
Looking for fun and feeling groovy
Ba da-da da-da da-da, feeling groovy
Hello lamppost, what'cha knowing
I've come to watch your flowers growin'
Ain't you got no rhymes for me?
Doo-ait-n-doo-doo, feeling groovy
Ba da-da da-da da-da, feeling groovy
I got no deeds to do, no promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morningtime drop all its petals on me
Life, I love you, all is groovy

I jog by forest lawn cemetary almost every morning and stop and watch when graves are dug and I always sing these lines to myself:
I've got no deeds to do
No promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy
And ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
Life I love you
All is groovy

I told my wife I want these words on my headstone

Short, sweet, pure. "Dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep", and that's just perfectly fine.

I am 73 and grew up through the fifties, sixties and seventies and that is where most music stops for me. I figure I grew up in the best three decades a boy/man could. For all you younger folk welcome to those decades. I do find it amazing that many youngsters are coming onto music like we grew up on, mainly because it is better than what is being called music today.

Born in 2003, i pratically just listen to the music from 60,70,80s. Zeppelin is my favorite band. But nowadays we have such very skilled musicians too, like Tame Impala!

Thomas Nelson

Bah. Very dismissive attitude to have in my opinion. I wouldn't want to be stuck in a bubble all of my life considering the proliferation of internet and easier access to tools and instruments means there's tons more music out there to explore

I guess you would say, ¨It was easier on the ears.¨ :)

Well, if it wasn´t better it was at least more traditional when it comes to popular songs and music in general.

in my belief all music is good as long as the person is good. i love all kinds of music. honestly, the only music i don't like is country. my two favorite genres out of them all has to be synthwave and 70s folk.

Too Many Toasters

The only bone I have to pick with this song is that's it's too short. I would love it a lot more if they had the song go for another 30 seconds.

I think it's that kind of a little, sweet song with child's joy in it. It has to be short because it matches the whole idea.
