"The 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-it in 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 morning time drop all its petals on me
Life I love you, all is groovy

    General Commentyeah ... I agree with weezerific wholeheartedly. this song makes me feel super good - a definite mood lifter. it's about slowing down and just taking the time to actually LIVE your life, rather than just going through the motions of living.

    General CommentI agree with both of you. I think every one needs to just stop look around and enjoy where you are at right now. Stop worrying about whats next and live in the moment.

    Song MeaningPaul used to ride his Honda motorcycle from Queens to Manhattan on his way to school. At the time, the surface of the road on the bridge was under repair, and was grooved. This makes it feel "mushy" to ride a motorcycle on, I know from experience. "Feelin' Groovy" is simply the feeling he got from his bike on the grooves, with the double meaning that life is just a lot more "groovy" when experienced from a moving motorcycle. Paul Simon has told this story several times.

    General CommentThis song is one of their greatest. Unfortunetly, GAP got the rights to it and ruined it in one of their commercials....

    General CommentThis is the happiest song ever. And the lyrics are amazing "Hello lamppost,
    What cha knowing?
    I've come to watch your flowers growing.
    Ain't cha got no rhymes for me?"
    Thats so creative and great. Paul Simon is one of the greatest songwriters ever and not too shaby of a singer either...but not as good as Art.
