Lyrics Mr. Bojangles

I knew a man Bojangles and he danced for you in worn out shoes
Silver hair, a ragged shirt and baggy pants the old soft shoe
He jumped so high jumped so high then he'd lightly touch down
I met him in a cell in New Orleans he was down and out
He looked to me to be the eyes of age as he spoke right out
He talked of life, talked of life he laughed, slapped his leg and stepped
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles dance
He said his name Bojangles and he danced a lick
Across the cell
He grabbed his pants a better stance and jumped so high
Clicked his heels
He let go a laugh let go a laugh
Shook back his clothes all around
He danced for those in minstrel shows and county fairs throughout the south
He spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and he
And traveled about
His dog up and died he up and died
After twenty years he still grieves
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles dance
He said I dance now at every chance in honky tonks for drinks and tips
But most the time I spend behind these county bars
'Cos I drinks a bit
He shook his head and as he shook his head
I heard someone ask please
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles go on and dance
Lah lah lah lah lah lah lah lah lah
Lah lah lah lah lah lah ah lah lah lah lah lah lah lah
Lah lah lah lah lah lah
