OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain, you turn the girl, rollaway and circle left
4 ladies rollaway and circle left you go
Allemande left and weave the ring
*Brother you don't know a nicer occupation
Swing your girl around and promenade
Than standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls go by


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*If you've got a rich imagination

*You can't go to jail for what you're thinking


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around you go
Walk in and square thru, you go 4
All the way around do the right & left thru
Turn the girl, veer left and ferris wheel
Square thru 3/4 round now
Swing and you promenade
Try standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls go by

Standing On The Corner

Standing on the corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on the corner watching all the girls go by
Brother you don't know a nicer occupation
Matter of fact, neither do I
Than standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by

I'm the cat that got the cream
Haven't got a girl, but I can dream
Haven't got a girl, but I can wish
So I take me down to Main street
And that's where I select my imaginary dish

Standing on the corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on the corner giving all the girls the eye
Brother if you've got a rich imagination
Give it a whirl, give it a try
Try standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by

Saturday and I'm so broke
Haven't got a girl and that's no joke
Still I'm living like a millionaire
When I take me down to Main Street
And I review the harem parading for me there

Standing on the corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on the corner underneath the springtime sky

Brother you can't go to jail for what you're thinking
Or for the woo look in your eye
You're only standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by

Lyrics by Frank Loesser.
Recorded by Four Lads; Dean Martin; many others.
