Shoeshine Boy

This song is by Gerry Rafferty and appears on the 2000 re-issue of Can I Have My Money Back? (1971).

Shoeshine boy, he's makin' his money workin' dowtown on Main Street
Shoeshine boy, I know it ain't funny cleanin' everything on two feet
Get down, get down upon your knees and brush your blues away
It won't be long till Saturday night and you'll be dancin' with your lady till the break of day.

Shoeshine boy, don't have no ambition, just wants to be a kerbside boot black
Shoeshine boy, your daddy's getting older, gotta take the weight off his back
Get down, get down upon your knees and brush your blues away
It won't be long till Saturday night and you'll be dancin' with your lady till the break of day.

You know you feel so good when she comes to need you
And when you're dancin' together, you just can't beat you.

Get down, get down upon your knees and brush your blues away
It won't be long till Saturday night and you'll be dancin' with your lady till the break of day.

You know you feel so good when she comes to need you
And when you're dancin' together, you just can't beat you.

Shoeshine boy, he's makin' his money workin' dowtown on Main Street
Shoeshine boy, I know it ain't funny cleanin' everything on two feet
Get down, get down upon your knees and brush your blues away
It won't be long till Saturday night and you'll be dancin' with your lady till the break of day.
