Lyrics

Well, you can make my life complete
If you say that we could meet
For a minute on the sixty second street
Oh, yeah

The city's melting in the heat
I’ve got my flip flops on my feet
You see me walking down sixty second street

Well, time is flying by so fast
Each day quicker than the last
It means I must be having fun
I hope it carries on and on and on

Sixty seconds of your day
Is all I ask of you
I only need a little time
To show what I can do

Do, do-do-do-do-do
Do, do, do, do-do-do-do
Da, da, do-do-do-da-da
Da, da, da, do-do-do-do
Do, do, do-do-do-do-do
Do, do, do, do-do-do-do
Da, da, da, da

We can grab a bite to eat (wee-ooh, wee-ooh)
Sit and listen to the beat (wee-ooh, wee-ooh)
Of the traffic on sixty second street

Well, time is flying by so fast (do, do do, do)
Each day quicker than the last (do, do do, do)
It means I must be having fun (wee-ooh, wee-ooh)
I hope it carries on and on and on

Sixty seconds of your day
Is all I ask of you
I only need a little time
To show what I can do

Do, do-do-do-do-do
Do, do, do, do-do-do-do
Do, do, do-do-do-do-do
Do, do, do, do-do-do-do
Ba, bop, ba-ba-ja-boo-ba
Bop, bop, bop, bop-ba-ja-boo
Ba, ba, ba, ba

(whistling)

Well, you can make my life complete
If you say that we could meet
For a minute on the sixty second street

Just a minute on the sixty second street
Just a minute on the sixty second street
Sixty second street
