Leave Your Shoes With The Shoeshine Boy

Leave your shoes with the shoeshine boy
Leave your shoes with the shoeshine boy
Well come back in a week with his smile on your feets
Leave your shoes with the shoeshine boy

Don't you dance with that crazy girl
Don't you dance with that crazy girl
Well she'll give you all roses grab all your hoses
Don't dance with that crazy girl

Now see that guy with the roller skates
Well you better warn him before it's too late
If he keeps drinking that whiskey and beer
Pretty soon he's gonna disappear

Tell a joke that nobody knows
Tell a joke that nobody knows
Well if it's reasonably funny
Why, they'll give you all the goddamn money
Tell a joke that nobody knows

Take your hat off and roll it home
Take that goddamn hat off and roll it directly home
You can buy a gas station or you can die of starvation
Take your hat off and roll it home

Now I see you're leaning towards the end of the world
And all your oysters done run outta pearls
But before you leave this place
Wipe that jelly off your face

And leave your shoes with the shoeshine boy...
