Woke up cold one Tuesday 
I'm looking tired and feeling quite sick
I felt like there was something missing in my day to day life
So I quickly opened the wardrobe  Pulled out some jeans and a t-shirt that seemed clean
 Topped it off with a pair of old shoes 
That were ripped around the seams 
And I thought these shoes just don't suit me

Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything is right 
I said, hey I put some new shoes on
And everybody's smiling, it's so inviting 
Oh short on money but long on time
 Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I'm running late and I don't need an excuse  Cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes 

Woke up late one Thursday 
And I'm seeing stars as I'm rubbing my eyes
And I felt like there were two days missing 
As I focused on the time
And I made my way to the kitchen 
But I had to stop from the shock of what I found 
A room full of all my friends dancing round and round 
And I thought hello new shoes 
Bye bye blues 

Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything is right 
I said, hey I put some new shoes on
And everybody's smiling, it's so inviting 
Oh short on money but long on time
 Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I'm running late and I don't need an excuse  Cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes 

Take me wandering through these streets
 Where bright lights and angels meet
 Stone to stone they take me on
I'm walking to the break of dawn
Take me wandering through these streets
 Where bright lights and angels meet
 Stone to stone they take me on
I'm walking to the break of dawn

Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything is right 
I said, hey I put some new shoes on
And everybody's smiling, it's so inviting 
Oh short on money but long on time
 Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I'm running late and I don't need an excuse  Cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes 

Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything is right 
Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything is right 
I said, hey I put some new shoes on
And everybody's smiling, it's so inviting 
Oh short on money but long on time
 Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I'm running late and I don't need an excuse  Cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes
