Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues 
C'mon get rhythm, when you get the blues 
Get a rock 'n roll feeling in your bones 
Put taps on your toes and get goin'
Get rhythm, when you get the blues 

 Little shoeshine boy never get slowed down
But he's got the dirtiest job in town
Bendin' low at the peoples' feet
On the windy corner of a dirty street
Well, I asked him while he shined my shoes 
How'd he keep from gettin' the blues 
He grinned as he raised his little head
 Popped a shoeshine rag and then he said

Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues 
C'mon get rhythm, when you get the blues 
A jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine
It'll shake all the troubles from your worried mind
Get rhythm, when you get the blues 

Get rhythm, when you get the blues 
C'mon get rhythm, when you get the blues 
Get a rock 'n roll feeling in your bones 
Put taps on your toes and get goin'
Get rhythm, when you get the blues 

Well, I sat down to listen to the shoeshine boy
And I thought I was gonna jump with joy
 Slapped on the shoe polish left and right 
He took a shoeshine rag and he held it tight 
He stopped once to wipe the sweat away
I said you're a mighty little boy to be-a workin' that way
He said I like it with a big wide grin
Kept on a poppin' and he said again 

Get rhythm, when you get the blues 
C'mon get rhythm, when you get the blues 
It only cost a dime, just a nickel a shoe
It does a million dollars worth of good for you
Get rhythm, when you get the blues
