The Lyrics

( blues guitar intro )

Gel-bottom shoes
You made me slide

I don't want two shoes this slipp'ry

( blues guitar riff )

'Cause if I wore you-uuuuu
My pace would die

I would be skinned and harmed!

Do you want to see me sprawl across the floor with you?
Do you want to hear me beg them to take you back?

I'd madly do it because

I don't want to break my leg
Give me no more shoe-grease
I don't want to break my leg
On my feet I want to stay

Tread's all gone
Butt hits side-walk

The way you de-feet me's crazy

( blues guitar riff )

Once tread was gone, butt accosted rock

You broke my tailbone in two, sir!

Do you want to see me sprawl across the floor with you?
Do you want to hear me beg them to take you back?

I'd madly do it because

I don't want to break my neck
Give me no more shoe-sleaze
I don't want to break my neck
On my feet I want to stay

( blues guitar instrumental )

Do you want to see me sprawl across the floor with you?
Do you want to hear me beg them to take you back?

I'd madly do it because

I don't want to break my head
Give me no more loose-feet
I don't want to break my head
On my feet I want to stay

Gel-bottom shoes
Please say goodbye

I hope we never meet again

( blues guitar riff )

But if we do-oooo
Don't you be surprised

If you find me wearing Vibram rubbers!

Do you want to see me sprawl across the floor with you?
Do you want to hear me beg them to take you back?

I'd madly do it because

I don't want to break my leg
Give me no more shoe-grease
I don't want to break my leg
On my feet I want to stay

I don't want to break my neck
Give me no more shoe-sleaze
I don't want to break my neck
On my feet I want to stay

I don't want to break my head
Give me no more loose-feet
I don't want to break my head
On my feet I want to stay
