Well, I'm standin' on the corner, watchin' all the girls go by
I'm always standin' on the corner, underneath the springtime sky
Well, you can't go to jail for what you're thinkin'
Or for the "wooo" look in your eye
You been standin' on the corner, watchin' all the girls
Watchin' all the girls, watchin' all the girls, they go by

And it's Saturday and I'm so broke
And I couldn't buy a girl a nickel Coke
I'm goin', so what, I'm feelin' just like a millionaire
Now just take me down to Main Street
And I'll survey the harem waitin' for me there

I'm gonna be standin' on the corner, watchin' all the girls go by
Oh baby, what you do now?
Standin' on the corner, givin' all the girls the eye
Well this ain't much of an occupation
Give it a whirl, give it a try
And you'll be standin' on the corner, watchin' all the girls
Watchin' all the girls, watchin' all the girls, they go by

You know that I'm the cat that's got the cream
And I ain't got me a girl, but I can dream
I ain't got me a girl, but I can wish
Now just take me down to Main Street
And I'll select my own imaginary dish

I'm standin' on the corner, watchin' all the girls go by
I'm gonna be standin' on the corner, underneath the springtime sky
You know you can't get arrested for what you're thinkin'
Or for the "wooo" look in your eye
You been standin' on the corner, watchin' all the girls
Watchin' all the girls, watchin' all the girls, they go by

I'm gonna watch 'em go by
Oh, hubba hubba, man
Go by, yeah
I'm gonna watch 'em go by
