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

I got no deeds to do, no promises to keep

I drank coffee in the early morning to this song and it was so wonderful

Congrats on breaking the record for the fastest cup of coffee ever 🤓

Mateus Figueira

I’m doing the same, but in the evening! cheers from Brasília - Brazil 😎✌🏼

Not until the accident

I'd think some herbal tea might be better. The song's opening line is, "slow down, you move too fast," and coffee will speed you up!

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.

When I find myself humming or singing it, it's usually at maybe 3/4 the actual speed.
It's just... a mellow song.

@Ogany Supreme They found that out with the release of James Taylor's cover of "You've Got A Friend." Songs became longer then, and it opened the door for such hits as "Bohemian Rhapsody." I had a friend who was a DJ when "You've Got A Friend" was getting a lot of play. He said that was the song they'd cue up when they needed a bathroom break.

@Ben Poupard lol. well done, Sir

They should have slowed down, they moved too fast.
