Have you ever passed the corner of Forth and Grand?
Where a little ball o' rhythm has a shoe-shine stand
People gather 'round and they clap their hands
He's a great big bundle o' joy
He pops the boogie woogie rag
The Chattanoogie shoe-shine boy
He charges you a nickel just to shine one shoe
He makes the oldest kind o' leather look like new
You feel as though you want to dance when he gets through
He's a great big bundle o' joy, he pops the boogie woogie rag
The Chattanoogie shoe-shine boy
It's a wonder that the rag don't tear. the way he makes it pop
You ought to see him fan the air
With his hoppity-hippity-hippity-hoppity-hoppity-hippity-hop
He opens up for business when the clock strikes nine
He likes to get up early when they're feelin' fine
Everybody gets a little rise 'n shine, with the great big bundle o' joy
He pops the boogie woogie rag, the Chattanoogie shoe-shine boy
(instrumental break)
It's a wonder that the rag don't tear, the way he makes it pop
Just listen to him fan the air, here he goes!
He opens up for business when the clock strikes nine
He likes to get up early when they're feelin' fine
Everybody gets a little rise 'n shine, with the great big bundle o' joy
He pops the boogie woogie rag, the Chattanoogie shoe-shine boy
The Chattanoogie shoe-shine boy.
