Lyrics:


Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobblestones
Looking for fun and feeling groovy
Ba da-da da-da da-da, feeling groovy

Hello lamppost, what'cha knowing
I've come to watch your flowers growin'
Ain't you got no rhymes for me?
Doo-ait-n-doo-doo, feeling groovy
Ba da-da da-da da-da, feeling groovy

I got no deeds to do, no promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morningtime drop all its petals on me
Life, I love you, all is groovy

H.R. Pufnstuf!
I was exposed to S&G at an early age.  I can recall listening to them in probably first grade.   This track was a favorite.

I also remember an awkward conversation with my mother when I asked her about the lyrics to Cecilia.

I always have loved this song. However, I must admit I personally enjoy the Williamsburg Bridge a bit more than the 59th Street Bridge, as it's in my neighborhood and such a please to walk across into NYC.
 
Of the 4 East River bridges, the Williamsburg may be the most challenging for a bicyclist, followed by the Queensborough 59th (monster steep and long), then the Manhattan. The Bklyn is a piece of cake -- shorter and not steep -- but pesky and inattentive tourists always wander and intrude in the bike lane. I don't feel groovy when I have to yell to get them out of the way. They feel entitled to my go go space. They oughta listen to RP.

This is a cool song. Groovy indeed.
