Down On The Corner Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Early in the evenin' just about supper time
Over by the court house they're starting to unwind
Four kids on the corner trying to bring you up
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

Down on the corner out in the street
Willy and the poor boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Rooster hits the washboard and people just got smile
Blinky thumps the gut bass and solos for a while
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his Kalamazoo
Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo

Down on the corner out in the street
Willy and the poor boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner out in the street
Willy 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've got a nickel won't you 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
Willy and the poor boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner out in the street
Willy and the poor boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner out in the street
Willy and the poor boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet
