White Shoes Blues

I ain’t really much of a dresser I suppose
I ain’t really all that much on clothes
but lately, just this little while
I have noticed a particular style
and I just gotta spread the news
about those pure white ultra bright sanitary shoes

some people work real hard for their pay
some people don’t do nothin’ but they get paid anyway
some don’t mind dirt on their hands
some people run just as fast as they can
and they will just naturally choose
those pure white ultra bright sanitary shoes

the president’s teeth make a perfect smile
Mark Spitz swims a perfect mile
Pat Boone sings with a voice like silk
he gets the power of Jesus from a glass of milk
and so he don’t get confused
he wears pure white ultra bright sanitary shoes

you get your hair all plastered with pump pomade
you got underarm deodorant and aftershave
you gotta watch real careful where you walk on the street
so as not to insult your elite feet
‘cause you surely would hate to lose
those pure white ultra bright sanitary shoes

you got your casual class and three piece suit
don’t say “umbrella” say “bumbershoot”
don’t say “food” say “cuisine”
it makes it more valuable, if you know what I mean
it’s like livin’ in a luxury cruise
wearin’ pure white ultra bright sanitary shoes

you can wear ‘em high you can wear ‘em low
they really look good on the patio
if you want to make that big advance
you get a white belt and maroon pants
and then you know you’ve paid your dues
wearin’ pure white ultra bright sanitary shoes

I been down on the bottom lookin’ up at the street
some people you can tell by lookin’ at their feet
some will step on you last, some will step on you first
but the white ones always get you the worst
and it gives you the underfoot blues
to get stepped on by those pure white ultra bright sanitary shoes
