The 59th Street Bridge Song

(Feeling Groovy)

Words & Music:

Paul Simon


C    G         Am7      G

Slow down, you move too fast.

You've got to make the morning last.

Just kicking down the cobblestones.

Looking for fun and feeling groovy.

Ba da da da da da da da -- feeling groovy.


Hello lamp post, what'cha knowin'?

I've come to watch your flowers growing.

Ain'tcha got no rhymes for me?

Dootin’ doo-doo, feeling groovy.

Ba da da da da da da da -- feeling groovy.


G   CM7         Bm7      Am7         GM7

Got no deeds to do -- no promises to keep.

    C           G          Am7      G

I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.

        C            G            Am7       G

Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.

C       G         Am7    G   C      G   Am7    G

Life, I love you, all is groovy.
