Down on the Corner

Goo Goo DollsBuy this song

Early on the evening, just about suppertime
Over by the courthouse, they're startin' to unwind
Poor kids on the corner tryin' to bring you up
Willie picks a tune out and he knows they gonna start

Down on the corner 
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet

Johnny hits the washboard, people just gotta smile
Robby thumbs a gut-bass and solos for a while
Poor boy brings the rhythm on his kalamazoo
And Willie goes into a dance doubles on kazoo, hey!

Down on the corner 
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet

Down on the corner 
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet

Down on the corner 
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet

You don't need a penny just to hang around
But if you got a nickel won't ya lay your money down
Over on the corner there's a happy noise 
People come from all around to watch the magic boy

Down on the corner 
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet
