The Lyrics

Don't really like them, but thought it'd make a good parody.
Just look at those shoes that are like skates
I see the kids wearing them, think they're great
No other shoes got wheels in their soles
I like the shoes that let you roll

When I enter a store in the mall
I see the kids skate in, they're havin' a ball
In ten minutes I'll buy those shoes, them all
I like the shoes that let you roll

Just like the shoes that let you roll
The kind of shoes you don't wear to bowl
Yeah they might help you get some soccer goals
Oh, those shoes that let you roll

When I see the kids skatin' to go
I just wanna skate on those things tomorrow
I'm gonna find them real soon, when don't know
Gettin' those shoes that let you roll

I'm a young adult, but I just don't care
I'll buy those kids' shoes if in my size to wear
Those other shoes don't have wheel based soles
I got those shoes that let you roll

Wearin' those shoes that let you roll
I'm rollin' over that big pothole
And then I roll across that grassy knoll
With those shoes that let you roll

Always wear shoes that let you roll
I get weird looks and just hit some moles
I don't care, I just skate by flagpoles
In those shoes that let you roll

Never take off shoes that let you roll
They might help you get a starring role
At least they'll help you really quickly stroll
You'll like shoes that let you roll

Just trust me, get shoes that let you roll
No they won't make you look like a troll
You will feel young and you will feel whole
In those shoes that let you roll
