The Lyrics

Reworking a doo-wop song is not easy, especially if you're trying to please the pacing Nazis.
Here's my story, it's sad but true.
It's about two feet, they're black and blue.
I wore these sneakers, then ran around.
Didn't get the best deal in town.

Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! La, la, la, la!
Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Awwww...

Yeah, I shoulda known from the very start
my heel would be a very swollen part.
Listen people, what I'm telling you:
(Hey!) Don't you buy that runaround shoe.

Yeah, I bought 'em at that mall's Foot Locker place.
You shoulda seen the look on that shoe salesman's face.
But if you don't wanna cry like I do
(Hey!) Don't you buy that runaround shoe.

Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Awwww...

I like to go jogging around.
Yeah, but Nikes really got me down.
Now, people lemme put you wise:
You won't move like NBA guys!

Heed the moral of the story from the guy who knows:
I fell right down and my blister still grows.
Ask any fool whose speed never grew:
(Hey!) Don't you buy that runaround shoe!
Yeah! Stay away from that brand!
You'll need some blister goo!
Don't you buy that shoe!

Awwww...
I like to go jogging around.
Yeah, but Nikes really got me down.
Now, people lemme put you wise:
You won't move like NBA guys!

Heed the moral of the story from the guy who knows:
I fell right down and my blister still grows.
Ask any fool whose speed never grew:
(Hey!) Don't you buy that runaround shoe!
Yeah! Stay away from that brand!
You'll have to go buy that goo, now!
Whoa, whoa whoa!
Don't buy that shoe, unless you wanna be like THIS Mike.
