Talkin' Tennis Shoes Blues


I got two feet, I got ten toes
Everybody but Bo knows
There ain't nothing in the world that a man wouldn't do
To land his hands on some brand new shoes

Well I bought myself some brand new shoes
So I could jump like a kangaroo
They were fine shoes without a doubt
I was pumpin' them up and I was airin' them out
I got some brand new shoes

South Central Bell turned off my phone
The landlady wants me out of my home
I don't have any money but I'm not blue
I got myself these brand new shoes
Of course I'm gettin evicted
I ain't eaten in three days
But you outta see me in my shoes

I said landlord, please, I had to buy 'em
Michael Jordan said I should try 'em
He said I could be just like him
Go straight though the roof and out of the gym
They're my brand new shoes
So I bought 'em
Now I got 'em
Can't figure out how to work 'em though

I got two feet, I got ten toes
Everybody but Bo knows
There ain't nothing in the world that a man wouldn't do
To land his hands on some brand new shoes

I was out _______ about a week or two
These thugs come up and tried to steal my shoes
They looked mean they looked tough
I looked down and said shoes do your stuff
I pumped them up I aired them out
They didn't do shit
My new shoes

I said you guys won't know what to do
When I take off runnin' in my new shoes
Man I'll run fast I'll run far
Then when they hit me in the head with a crowbar
Knock me out.....
