The Soles Of My brand New Shoes

I’ve a pair of brand new shoes
Leather soles are what they use
But on pavement, leather soles
When I run get full of holes
Soles made of leather go tap, tap, tap
I need brand new shoes

Leather soles were just no good
I got shoes with soles of wood
‘Fore too long I had to laugh
‘Cause my soles had split in half
Soles made of wood go knock, knock, knock
Soles made of leather go tap, tap, tap
I need brand new shoes

My dad said, «Hey! No big deal!
Why not buy him soles of steel?»
Mom said, «If you do, it’s war!
Think about my hardwood floor!»
Soles made of steel go clang, clang, clang
Soles made of wood go knock, knock, knock
Soles made of leather go tap, tap, tap
I need brand new shoes

On his knees, the salesman knelt
He suggested soles of felt
When it rains out on the street
I end up with soaking feet
Soles made of felt go swish, swish, swish
Soles made of steel go clang, clang, clang
Soles made of wood go knock, knock, knock
Soles made of leather go tap, tap, tap
I need brand new shoes

I love eating crêpes, I do!
So why not crêpes under my shoe?
They’re the sweetest ones I’ve tried
But my crêpe soles, they don’t slide
Soles made of crêpe go eugh
And the shoe stops there
