Shine On Your Shoes
Tony Bennett
(Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz)

When there's a shine on your shoes,
there's a melody in your heart,
With a singable, happy feeling,
What a wonderful way to start to face the world every day
With a "deedle-um-dee-di-di,"
little melody that is making the world go by.
When you walk down the street with a happy-go-lucky beat,
You'll find a lot in what I'm repeating
"When there's a shine on your shoes,
there's a melody in your heart,"
What a wonderful way to start the day
