You got your toecaps reinforced with steel
Hard-wearing sole and heel
Make those tired feet feel like new

Take your pick, black or brown
Great for the country or the man in town
You're gonna need a quality shoe

You don't want no stand-by pair
'Cause these'll take the wear and tear
Made to take good care of you

For that trip by road or rail
For extra grip on those rocky trails
You're gonna need a quality shoe

Now, they maybe ain't too hot for dancing
But I don't foresee too much of that
You ain't exactly gonna be prancing
Around in the moonlight
With a cane and a top hat

If you could use a change of pace
And be excused from the rat race
Just take a look at what's on view

Lace 'em up, walk around
I guarantee you can't wear 'em down
You're gonna need a quality shoe

Now, I wish you sunny skies
Happiness wherever you may go
But you got to realise
There'll be wind, there'll be rain
And occasional snow

You're gonna want to smile in them
If you're gonna walk a mile in them
There'll be times when you'll be blue

To laugh at rainy days and then
Make your getaways in them
You're gonna need, you're gonna need
You're gonna need a quality shoe

You got your toecaps reinforced with steel
Hard-wearing sole and heel
Make those tired feet feel like new

Take your pick, black or brown
Great for the country or the man in town
You're gonna need a quality shoe
