"Shoes" as written by and Standage....
verse 1:
its not the way you walk.,
its not the way you hold your fork,
its not the stupid things you say in bed when i come in your face.
the way you hold a cigarette,
the way you smile when you're wet,
the way you make me cups of tea when i stay round at your place.

its just the shoes you wear,
its your shoes that turn me on,
i dont choose to stare,
so please dont get me wrong

verse 2:
i think your shoes can say alot,
'bout who you are or who you're not
so much more than gloves or coats or hats or glasses can,
but when i see you out in heels,
then i know your not for me.
but the difference thing is your wearing ???


instrumental bit


chorus 2:
its the shoes you wear
i dont make???
its the shoes you wear
its the shoes that turn me on

    General Commentbut of course. for instance, i am currently wearing no shoes, suggesting i am a naked naked man. muahahaha.

    i'd like to know what shoes his girlfriend was wearing while he came in her face. frankly i'm a little disturbed at the potential for ruination - YES I SAID RUINATION - of shoes. the fucking stuff stains leather like a bastard, you know. perhaps she could consider taking a break from her shoe fetish whilst indulging her boyfriend, as all them shoes can't come cheap.

    General CommentThis song is basically your typical ska song. Lets look at the Facts....Verse1-Chorus-Verse2-Chorus-Instrumental Bridge-Chorus again a couple times....Look at Less Than Jake, some of their songs follow that pattern too. By the way, I do dig the chicks with the Converse All-Stars, those shoes are hella tight!! It is a pretty good song
