"59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)" as written by and Paul Simon....
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 cha 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

    General CommentFabulous song, an ode to a warm sunny morning. One of my favorites and puts me in a great mood whenever I hear or sing it. It's impossible to be downcast with this song in your ears.

    I always find the title ironic, which I assume was Simon's intent. The song connotes a joyous ramble along a cobblestoned lane. Hardly New York's 59th Street Bridge and immediate environs. (If we're looking for New York settings that might fit, Central Park, Greenwich Village, the new Hgh Line and (since its redevelopment into a chic warren of cafes) the Meatpacking District come to mind.)
