The Lyrics

I used to walk, I used to hike
I used to ride all day on, mountain bikes
Like a fool I, did them without shoes
So now my feet are really killing me
Killing me, killing me

I need shoes, ‘cause the asphalt hurts my soles
You know I need shoes, like I’m walking on hot coals
You know I need shoes, oh this sure is getting old
You know I need shoes, I need shoes

Then yesterday, I walked so far away
Without good shoes on both of my feet
And then they came, fire ants! that made me lame
And I knew this was not my best week
My best week, my best week

I need shoes, ‘cause my feet look like red meat
You know I need shoes, ‘cause this day has been no treat
You know I need shoes, I need shoes
I need shoes, ‘cause I’m walking ’round all day
You know I need shoes, without them I dearly pay
You know I need shoes, I need shoes

Without shoes, I’m just one more animal
You know without shoes, I’m hearing the wild call
You know without shoes, it’s bad news
Give me shoes, or I just might go insane
Oh just give me shoes, ere I need to use a cane
You know I need shoes, I need shoes...
