Repassez-moi l'standard... "On the Sunny Side of the Street" music Jimmy McHugh & lyrics Dorothy Fields (1930)

"Cette mélodie inventive accompagnée des paroles joyeuses et optimistes de Dorothy Fields, aura gagné l'estime des musiciens les plus importants dès le début des années 30, comme Louis Armstrong en 1933 dans un disque qui pourrait bien être le 1er enregistrement d'un concert public !" Laurent Valero

25 février 1930, Harry Richman a présenté On the Sunny Side of the Street dans la Revue internationale de Lew Leslie au Majestic Theatre à New York. Le spectacle de 95 représentations fut un flop. 

Mais Dorothy Fields et Jimmy McHugh restent dans les mémoires pour les deux tubes On the Sunny Side of the Street et Exactly Like You, devenus des standards de  jazz !

Grab your coat
Grab your hat, baby
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Just direct your feet
On the sunny side of the street

Can't you hear a pitter-pat, babe?
And that happy tune is your step
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade
With those blues on parade, ba-ba-bo
But I'm not afraid, baby
My Rover's crossed over, ay

If I never have a cent, babe
I'd be rich as Rock-e-fellow
With gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street

Grab your coat
Get your hat
Leave your worry on the doorstep, ba-be-do
Just direct your feet
On the sunny side of the street, zay-zoo-za-ze-zo-zay

Can't you hear a pitter-pat?
Oh, the happy tune is your step, ba-be-oh
Life can be so sweet, oh, ba-be-bo-ba-bay
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade
Baby, with those blues on parade
Oh, but I'm not afreaid, baby
My rover!
My rover crossed over!

And if I never have a cent
I'll be rich as Rock-e-fellow, hey
With gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street
