The Lyrics

Had a job interview the other day that required me to wear my dress shoes, something I generally avoid like the plague. Anyway, I hadn't worn these spiffy-looking black slip-ons in probably more than two years, but they still looked good when I pulled them down out of the closet. I didn't put them on until I reached the parking lot of the place I was interviewing at. And I didn't notice that the heels of BOTH shoes had apparently exploded or imploded almost as soon as they hit the cement. BUT, when I crossed one leg over the other during the interview I saw this black "foam" stuff on my pant leg and quickly placed that leg down and my foot on the floor. Everywhere I walked left a trail of this shredded black foam. Fortunately they did not appear to notice and I made it through the interview without that happening - and I got the job as well. Anyway...I now present to you..."Shredding Shoe Soles"...
Hell, what goes? What is this black stuff that I see?
Could it be coming off of me?
All down the hall - shredded soles

Going to an interview
got on my best clothes
If I'll get this job now
Well, I just don't know
I wore my best dress shoes
hoping to please
As I walked the hallway
what is this that I see?

Oh, hell no...well this just can't be happening
my interview will be ruined
All down the hall - shredded soles

(guitar solo)

"I don't know why this is happening" I said
I put them on and then they shred
I left the hall - full of foam

Haven't worn them in so long
Just don't like wearing shoes
But I must wear them right now
Or this job I will lose
If I stepped in doo-doo
that I could explain
But when your shoe is shredding
What is there to say?

"I don't know why this is happening" I said
I put them on and then they shred
Hope I don't fall - from these soles

I was going to pick out one line, but they were all good. Funny!! Great imagery! uh....5's, of course.

Fantastic, Paul! I could hear The Yardbirds singing this in my head, your pacing is so good.

Adagio, Thanks! Johnny D - and I had to watch my pacing very carefully, what with my soles so lopsided. I ought to take a picture of those damn shoes. It really tripped me out when I got back out to my care and had a real good look at what happened to them. Thanks!

555. Paul, this reminded me of the Seinfeld episode where George had a job interview and his pants made a rustling noise every time he took a step. Very funny! Glad you got the job...(George got his, also)

Thanks, really was quite alarming to put my foot up on my knee briefly and see this black "fuzz" come off on my pant leg. I sure put it down quickly enough once I figured out what was happening. Didn't realize the same had happened to the OTHER shoe until I got outside...

Thanks, JB. Well, the owner's seemed sharp and straight-forward, and I know a couple of the folks working there already. That's a good start, anyway.
