Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

My Street

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1972 Schroder Music Company, renewed 2000.

My street is a friendly street,
People say hello to the people they meet,
People walk along with the happy feet
On my street, Yes.
Little kids, big kids, the women and men,
Know you by your name and they knew you when,
Know where you're going and where you've been,
On my street, Yes.

My street, my street,
Kind of a modest and shy street,
But we're all together
And care for each other
On my street.

My street is a neighborhood,
Makes you feel as though you want to be good,
Want to be liked and understood
On my street, Yes.
Come to my street and you will find,
People are mostly the gentle kind,
You'll feel as tho you can rest your mind
On my street, Yes.
