Shoeshine Boy

This song is by Eddie Kendricks and appears on the album For You (1974).

Shoeshine boy how you do your work so well
Shoeshine boy tryin' to make a livin', you go somewhere
Shoeshine boy where are you gonna be ten years from now
Just move, just keep workin' shoeshine boy

I wanna know are you gonna be the richest man around
You've been a workin' so hard
So many things in life to learn
Shoeshine boy, what will you discover

Though it's a long way up, you'll reach the top
Now when you'll finally get back
Don't forget from where you came shoeshine boy
Workin' so hard in the noon day sun
Just, just keep workin' shoeshine boy

Look at ya now, gettin' it together
Teasing the guys and havin' lots of fun
Shoeshine boy, yeah, don't you know that you're a star
Yeah, you're a star shoeshine boy

Just the way, just the way that you are
You've been a workin' so hard
So many things in life to learn, so much to learn
Shoeshine boy, what will you discover

Yeah, shoeshine boy
Shoeshine boy
You've been a workin' so hard
Shoeshine boy
Don't you know that you're a star
That's the way that you are
