East side, West side,
All around the town,
The tots sang ‘Ring-a-Rosie’,
Brooklyn Bridge is falling down!
Boys and girls together,
Me and Mamie O’Rorke,
Tripped the light fantastic
On the sidewalks of New York.
Oh I ain’t got nobody
Oh nobody cares for me
I’m so sad and lonely
Won’t somebody please take a chance on me?
Oh when you smilin’, when you smilin
The whole world smiles with you.
Yes when you laughin’ oh when you laughin’
The sun comes shinin through.
But when you cryin’, you bring on the rain
So stop your sighin. Be happy again
Keep on smilin, keep on smilin,
And the world will smile with you
When you hear all the bells go ding a ling
All join ’round and sweetly you must sing
And when the verse is through in the chorus all join in
There’ll be a hot time in the old town tonight. My baby
Please oh please, oh do not let me fall,
You’re all mine and I love you best of all,
And you must be my pal, or I’ll have no pal at all,
There’ll be a hot time in the old town tonight.
