Beautiful Shoes
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 7-5-2019

I talked to my cousin, it was on, Independence Day
Among other things, he called to see if the earthquake had, taken me away
Though the Earth had stopped shaking, all hell had broke loose
He said "write me a song about a snaggle toothed hunchback wearing, beautiful shoes

I said ""Beautiful shoes, He said " Beautiful shoes"
A snaggle toothed hunchback wearing beautiful shoes, Yeah, beautiful shoes

He said "Paint me a picture, I'll give you the words
But show me the colors, that long to be heard
Make it a Ditty, or maybe the Blues
You know, like a snaggle toothed hunchback wearing, beautiful shoes

--Repeat Chorus--

Well, our conversation; it seemed to, move just like the tide
In & out and high & low, till we both became tongue tied
Our mothers, they were sisters, sometime after 23 skiddo
When the hunchback came from Notre Dame, & he saved the girl, not the shoes

-Repeat Chorus-

I thought, surely you guest, Rossy, it all seems somewhat Ruthless
But then Ruthy concurred with him, her Romeo, his Juliet
I'm sure Johnny'd be cackling, while Brenda coo cooed
About a, snaggle toothed hunchback wearing, beautiful shoes

-Repeat Chorus-

Take me to the highway, drive me up the coast
Clean out of California, I need that good old burnt pot roast

--Repeat Chorus--X2
