Verse:
Down in front of Ca - sey's,
Old brown wood - en stoop,
On a sum -mer's eve - ning,
We formed a mer - ry group.
Boys and girls to - geth - er,
We would sing and waltz,
While To - ny played the or - gan,
On The Side - walks Of New York.
 
Chorus:
East side, West side,
All a - round the town,
The tots sang "ring a ros - ie,"
"Lon - don Bridge is fall - ing down."
Boys and girls to - geth - er,
Me and Ma - mie O' Rorke,
Tripped the light fan - tas - tic,
On The Side - walks Of New York.
