Eddie Kendricks – Shoeshine Boy lyrics
Shoe shine boy, you work hard all day,
Shoe shine boy, got no time to play
Evry nickel helps a lot,
So, shine, shine, shoe shine boy.
You find joy in the things you do,
Shoe shine boy, seldom ever blue
You're content with what youve got,
So, shine, shine, shoe shine boy.
People look at you with scorn
Cause your clothes are worn and torn,
Still you never whine.
You keep walking up and down the street,
Pleading with each one you meet,
Brother, Can you spare a shine?
Shoe shine boy, soon the day will come,
Shoe shine boy, soon a time you'll hum,
Evry nickel helps a lot,
So, shine, shine, shoe shine boy
