Johnny Paycheck – Song And Dance Man lyrics

Well I'm a song and dance man come on gather round me and clap your hands
Bring your tips boys and put 'em in the ol' tin can
Buy me a drink boys and I'll do a little bit of the old soft shoe
Put a little somethin' in the kitty and I'll sing and dance for you

I'll play a number and you can do the buck and wing
Or sing any sad song that you wanna hear me sing
Just name your pleasure then dig down in your jeans
My body needs a beverage and my guitar needs some strings
Cause I'm a song and dance man...

Well I caught pneumonia from walkin' in a pourin' rain
But I found heaven in a little room in New Orleans loved me till I got strong
Then I caught me a freight right out of her heart and I wrote about it in a song
Cause I'm a song and dance man...
I'm a song and dance man...
