SIDEWALKS OF NEW YORK The song was originally written in the 1890's, and was used as a Presidential campaign theme in the 1920's. (James W. Blake / Charles E. Lawlor) Mel Tormé The Grateful Dead East Side, West Side, all around the town The kids sang "ring around rosie", "London Bridge is falling down" Boys and girls together, me and Mamie O'Rourke We tripped the light fantastic on the sidewalks of New York 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 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 (Contributed by Andy & Mogg - August 2002)
