Early in the evening, just about supper time
Over by the courthouse, they're startin' to unwind
Poor kids on the corner, tryin' to bring you up
Willie picks a tune out and he knows they gonna start

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Johnny hits the washboard, people just gotta smile
Robby thumbs a gut-bass and solos for a while
Poor boy brings the rhythm on his Kalamazoo
And Willie goes into a dance, doubles on kazoo, hey

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

You don't need a penny just to hang around
But if you got a nickel, won't ya lay your money down?
Over on the corner, there's a happy noise
People come from all around to watch the magic boy

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet
