I love trees and I love this street with all my heart in my hometown Bronkhorstspruit, Gauteng, South Africa.

I have often walked down this street before;
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before.
All at once am I several stories high.
Knowing I’m on the street where you live.
Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?
Does enchantment pour out of ev’ry door?
No, it’s just on the street where you live!
And oh! The towering feeling
just to know somehow you are near.
The overpowering feeling
that any second you may suddenly appear!
People stop and stare. They don’t bother me.
For there’s no where else on earth that I would rather be.
Let the time go by, I won’t care if I
can be here on the street where you live.

You can listen to the song by Dean Martin here

Enjoy!
