Some people say you got a psychedelic presence
Shinin' in the park with a bioluminescense
Down these city streets I see you comin'
From afar and I know

In this world ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world
Ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world

Nobody sings like Mary Sue Bell
Nobody prays like Willie Mac Tell
Nobody walks a mile in my stolen shoes like I do

In this world ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world
Ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world

I still miss my lonesome lover
And I can't find no single other
To take his empty place
In my heart of hearts, I told him

In this world ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world
Ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world

The ghost of Shakespeare's on the street
Corduroy hat layin' at his feet
Howlin' in the harp
These dirty city blues fallin' hard

In this world ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world
Ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world

Zora Neale Hurston told her story
And they kicked her out of New York city
Just like Jesus Christ in Gallilee, like I said

In this world ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world
Ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world

Some people say I got a psychedelic presence
Shinin' in the park with a bioluminescense
Down these city streets I see you comin'
From afar and I know

Ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world
Ain't nobody's got the shine
Like you got to shine in this world
