The Lyrics

i know...they're funky and gay
someone...has broken the lace
they fit real bad...the insides, rough
i been walkin' 'round with my toes smashed
it makes my feet get tough

i know...these things ain't brand new
i know...their life's nearly through
the instep's wrong...the heels reduced to stubs
the eyelets rust...the tongue flops down
gets tangled in my cuff

old things...i think that they blow
i ain't...gonna miss 'em when they go
the style's all wrong...ain't no diamond in the rough
the laces bust...when i walk 'round
it really makes me gruff

new pair..i'm hopin' to find
some shoes...that's gonna give me peace of mind
cause these are sad...the work was muffed
i've been walkin' 'round with my feet thrashed
the soles ain't thick enough

i've got second hand shoes..i've got second hand shoes...yeah
i've got second hand shoes...i've got second hand shoes..yeah

great job, alvin...I've played around with this OS a few times to absolutely no avail...maybe this will inspire me to revisit it (and the rest of that great album)...slip these brand new, sleek 5's onto your toes and see how they fit - they're the latest fashion, ya' know ~ ~ ~

5s for a new pair of shoes and thanks for leaving out all of the weird non-word (or is he singing "down"?) background vocals.

Red, FYI - I saw a DVD about the "Making of Rumours" and what Buckingham is singing is more like "Bauwm", if you can phoneticize that..."Buh-Buh-Bauwm" ~ ~ ~
