sunny side of the street lyrics – face to face

seen the carnival at rome
had the women i had the booze
all i can remember now
is little kids without no shoes
so i saw that train and i got on it with a heartful of hate
and a l*st for vomit

now i’m walking on the sunnyside of the street

stepped over bodies in bombay
tried to make it to the u.s.a.
ended up in nepal
up on the roof with nothing at all
and i knew that day i was going to stay

right where i am, on the sunnyside of the street

been in a palace, been in a jail
i just don’t want to be reborn a snail
just want to spend eternity

right where i am, on the sunnyside of the street

as my mother wept it was then i swore
to take my life as i would a wh*r*
i know i’m better than before
i will not be reconstructed

just wanna stay right here, on the sunnyside of the street

on the sunnyside of the street
