Good point, but I guess I would say it's arguable. As you may know, that whole section ("When she mentioned how her aunt bit off the spoon....") was not originally in the score and was added only after the show began performing out of town pre-Broadway. And the reason it was added was that, apparently, at least some of the audience did not recognize Freddy as the fellow from the Ascot scene, and "On the Street Where You Live" was not going over for that reason. So the new section was added to clarify Freddy's identity, but it was not originally conceived as a verse for the song. Plus it's separated from the song proper by a few lines of dialogue.
