Down On The Corner

Down On The Corner
Lyrics:

 

Early on the evening, just about suppertime
Over by the courthouse, they're startin' to unwind
Poor kids on the corner tryin' to bring you up
Willie picks a tune out and he knows they gonna start
 
Down on the corner 
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet
 
Johnny hits the washboard, people just gotta smile
Robby thumbs a gut-bass and solos for a while
Poor boy brings the rhythm on his kalamazoo
And Willie goes into a dance doubles on kazoo, hey!
 
Down on the corner 
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet
 
Down on the corner 
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet
 
Down on the corner 
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet
 
You don't need a penny just to hang around
But if you got a nickel won't ya lay your money down
Over on the corner there's a happy noise 
People come from all around to watch the magic boy
 
Down on the corner 
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet
