1. East side, West side,
All around the town,
The kids sang Ring-a-Round-Rosie,
London bridge is falling down.
Boys and girls together,
Me and Mamie O’Rourke,
Tripped the light fantastic
On the Sidewalks of New York.


2. East Side, West Side,
all around the town
Sweet Mamie grew up
and bough herself
a sweet little Alice-blue gown
All the fellas dug her,
you should have heard them squark
When I escorted Mamie
round the sidewalks of New York

3. East Side, West Side,
riding through the parks
We started swinging
at Jilly’s then we split to P.J.Clark’s
On to Chuck’s Composite,
then a drink at The Stork
We won’t get home until morning
’cause we’re going to take a walk
On the sidewalks of New York
