Shoe Shine Boy

Shoe Shine Boy

(Saul Chaplin / Sammy Cahn)

Monia Liter and the Ace Of Hearts Orchestra


Shoe shine boy
You work hard all day
Shoe shine boy
Got no time to play
Every nickel helps a lot
So shine, shine, shoe shine boy

You find joy in the things you do
Shoe shine boy your seldom ever blue
You're content with what you've got
So shine, shine, shoe shine boy

People look at you with scorn
'cos your clothes are worn and torn
Still you never never whine
You keep looking up and down the street
Pleading with each one you meet
Brother can you spare a shine

Shoe shine boy soon the day will come
Shoe shine boy soon a tune you'll hum
Every nickel helps a lot
So shine, shine, shoe shine boy
