Down in front of Casey's... old brown wooden stoop
On a summer's evening... we formed a merry group
Boys and girls together... we would sing and waltz
While Jay played the organ... on the sidewalks of New York

East Side, West Side,... all around the town
The tots sang "ring-a-rosie,"... "London Bridge is falling down"
Boys and girls together,... me and Papy O'Rourke
Tripped the light fantastic... on the sidewalks of New York

That's where Johnny Keating... and little Jimmy Crowe
Where Jakey Krause, the baker... who always had the dough
Pretty Nellie Shannon... with a dude as light as cork
First picked up the waltz step... on the sidewalks of New York

East Side, West Side,... all around the town
The tots sang "ring-a-rosie,"... "London Bridge is falling down"
Boys and girls together,... me and Papy O'Rourke
Tripped the light fantastic... on the sidewalks of New York
Sheel-bee-deen-doo-roo-doo doo-doo-geoa... on the sidewalks of New York
