New Shoes
by The BusBoys



I woke up late this afternoon -
Found a note by my bed
Well, my woman had took everything I owned -
And even stole the grease off my head
But I'm goin' downtown?
And I'm gonna buy me some new shoes
When there's nothin' to win, you got nothin' to lose
It ain't nothin' like a pair of brand new shoes
Oh yeah
I had a brand new shiny Cadillac
That I lost last night in a bet
Well, I fell on my knees I said, "Lord, help me please!"
I had to place my prayer collect
But I'm goin' downtown?
And I'm gonna buy me some new shoes
When there's nothin' to win, you got nothin' to lose
It ain't nothin' like a pair of brand new shoes
Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah! Yeah
Yeah! Yeah
Woo-oo-oo

Uncle Sam was supposed to send me a check
'Cause I told him the rent was due
Well, the check was too small for me to pay it all
So I got me some hiney, too
I'm goin' downtown?
And I'm gonna buy me some new shoes
When there's nothin' to win, you got nothin' to lose
It ain't nothin' like a pair of brand new shoes
Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah! Yeah
Yeah! Yeah
When there's nothin' to win, you got nothin' to lose
It ain't nothin' like a pair of brand new shoes
Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah! Yeah
Yeah! Yeah
