"On The Avenue (In The Neighborhood)" as written by and William/stevenson Weatherspoon....
No place like home, on the avenue
There is no place like home, on the avenue

There's a coffee shop
Where everyone stops
For a bite to eat,
And the waitress is sweet

And right next door,
There’s a big dance hall
Where your friends all go
To have a ball

On Broadway the lights are much brighter, but right here people aren't tired, on the avenue
Yeah, oooh on the avenue

There's a candy shop
Where the little kids stop
On their way to school
Breaking mother rules

A movie show,
Where lovers go
To the balcony,
Or some private seat

Downtown the girls are fine, but I’ve found one that is just as fine, here on the avenue,
Where the sky seems brighter and people aren't tired, on the avenue
Yeah, oh, on the avenue

There's a record shop
Where music never stops
Where we hang around
'til the shop's closed down

A barber shop
Where the barber is tops,
You can pick up the news
And get a shine on your shoes

Come home you may be wrong, but there's one place you know you belong, on the avenue
Yeah, oh, on the avenue

There is no place like home on the avenue...

Where the people aren’t tired...

Where the sky is brighter...
