Lyrics

New Shoes

Copyright 1975 Dana Clark

CHORUS:  Mama's got new shoes

And her eyes are shining, shining

Mama shook her blues

And she stopped her crying, crying

She's making up for lost time

Looking so good

Feeling so fine

Now she's got new shoes

New shoes

She's romancing, dancing

Now she's got new shoes

Mama's been staying home feeling low

Crying real tears and blowing her nose

Singing sad songs about loneliness

Sleeping alone, looking a mess

CHORUS

Mama, you're really changing your style

You traded those tears for a big, bright smile

Daddy may not love you like he used to do

But he's not the only daddy for you

Now you got new shoes

New shoes

She's romancing, dancing

Now she's got new shoes

Mama's been digging this living alone

Having so many callers on the telephone

She turned his picture face to the wall

And ever since she's been having a ball

CHORUS

She's got new shoes, she's stepping out

She's got new shoes, she's stepping out

She's got new shoes, she's stepping out

New shoes!
