when your days are sad and lonely
and you do not have a dime
and the air tastes old and rancid
and all crazy is the time
if you haven't any quiet
if you have no comfort too
do this just for your old self
and also for your shoe

if the sky just feels too heavy
if the sun has lost its sheen
if the trees seem to ignore you
and if every dog is mean
listen to my good advice
you do not have to pay
but try a little shoeshine
and chase the blues away

you say you lost your livelihood
you say you lost your head
you say your dearest neighbor
recently turned up dead
you say the entire blasted world
has turned into a shout
just try a little shoeshine
i think it will help out
