The Lyrics

I originally posted this in my parody writer website, but hope it will get more feedback here.
Yeah I got a bookbag with like half of my Sketchers
Extra-wides and narrows, and Nikes in wheelbarrows
Favorite doc is Marten, Scholl's a close second though
Before hiking treks I know what's the best protective sole
I use to shop with coupons, now I don't have that restriction
People like my mom hate, tell me its a bad addiction
But I'd rather call it appreciation
I could start shoe college with the knowledge I have placed in
Lobes over brain stem, it's like genius
Give me ten brands and I'll say which stays cleanest
Sometimes I go old-school and I rock my Air Jordans
Maxing out my credit cards so that I can afford them
Make a dreary day bright with my LA Lights
I know the right shoes to wear in a play-fight
You will never find a bigger connoisseur than me
Don't doubt my aptitude, I am most assuredly a

SHOE DORK! Walking bundle of love for footwear
I wonder if you care
Yes I'm a SHOE DORK
My feet are pampered like crazy
I guess that's what makes me
A really big shoe dork, shoe dork, shoe dork

Yes I know which shoes are likely to trap stanky sweat
Try to warn against the stench but nobody has thanked me yet
You should know I bleed shoes, but I'm not a mutant
What I mean is I've got interests so clear its translucent
You have got to understand, when people say Timbaland
I'm not thinking rapper but a famous boot brand
Lowest top, higher top, highest top, I won't stop
I've gotta get 'em all it's like how kids thought of Pokemon
I say Adidas, all day I dream 'bout shoes
Run out with my tongue out, but not near my mouth, dudes
If the people rush to buy a shoe I loved it first
Though logic says I should not, I'm getting more Converse
Size ten Reebok, same New Balance
I can tell by touch which is which, got talents
I look for symmetry, judge like they're car makes
Can tell by smell if name brands are legit or fakes, yup

SHOE DORK! Walking bundle of love for footwear
I wonder if you care
Yes I'm a SHOE DORK
My feet are pampered like crazy
I guess that's what makes me
A really big shoe dork, shoe dork, shoe dork


Black shoes fine but no designers
That get mentioned in Kanye hits, and I pine for
Signed by Bowerman originals, now I'd win
At existence if I got enough for half a bin
Spilled sauce from my spring roll onto my insole
I treat my sneakers like guests they rest on the table
Glass shattered on the floor since my hammer grip was poor
Shoe's fate was grim, no matter, I got more
Haters think they beat me, but none of them are close
They have all got less than, Imelda Marcos
Two hundred pairs of sneakers? you're a newbie
Don't talk about slippers unless a pair's ruby
No place like home, also home is where the shoes are
No shoes no service cannot be taken too far
My DNA got me fiending for another pair
I cannot get enough of what is the true underwear

SHOE DORK! Walking bundle of love for footwear
I wonder if you care
Yes I'm a SHOE DORK
My feet are pampered like crazy
I guess that's what makes me
A really big shoe dork, shoe dork, shoe dork

Tattoos and piercings are both just not me
I tape shoes all over my body
The people all stare and I don't care
Put my striders in my hair
And I'm proud of it, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


SHOE DORK! Walking bundle of love for footwear
I wonder if you care
Yes I'm a SHOE DORK
My feet are pampered like crazy
I guess that's what makes me
A really big shoe dork, shoe dork, shoe dork

I'm not a staunch fan of rap, but in comparing this to the original, I must say you've done a fantastic job...Really creative subs and clever near-rhymes...It looks like an overwhelming undertaking...you're either a natural rapper, yourself, or this was a real sweat job...Congratulations-plus

Hey, this is GOOD! Check it out everybody!

(HHS) OMG you named so many different brands of shoes! For the most part the pacing was solid other than a additional?missing syllable. The funny was top notch. 454.

I never thought I would read a well done song about shoes, but his is excellent! A lot of great rhymes and an overall great idea that was done well.

I liked the idea, but I had considerably trouble following this, maybe its just me. . .but good job anyway

There's a ton of great references and lines in here but I had a bit of trouble following it was well. I love the original song and seeing a parody of it (other than the college humor Star Wars one) is a good time.

(HHS) You know how awesome this parody is? I don't even like wearing shoes and I got a big kick out of it (pun intended)! Lots of great lines, particularly the Adidas (pretty sure it's a reference to another rap song, can't remember off the top of my head) and Imelda Marcos gags, crazy rhyming skills. Honestly it feels like Jay-Z wrote a song about shoes, that's how well-written this parody is. 555 new shoes for you!
