On Easy Street - In Rags is a delightful melodic admixture of cakewalk and ragtime in the straightforward form of AABBACCBB with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude between the C- and B-strains. A light-hearted affair with the following lyrics provided for the final BB-strains:
On easy street each night I meet a charming lady with blushes sweet.
Beware, beware don't venture there but just go on easy on easy street.
The cover of the original sheet music illustrates this not-so-romantic encounter with demure fashionable miss and a top-hatted young gent passing each other.
On Easy Street - In Rags was published by Whitney-Warner Publishing Co., Detroit, Michigan, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
