It was forty or fifty years ago
A big shot played with time
Mr. Walker held the dough
And both kept Cord in line
Watched and checked on every single day
Building his own special cars his very special way

Ooh, the new soft shoe
Ooh, the new soft shoe, yeah

And then walking through a Southern mall
I saw a shoeshine stand
A man was talking to a crowd
Holding slippers in his hand
Don't you know the same thing happens
Each and every day
Did you ever hear a song that's hard
to even play?

Ooh, the new soft shoe
Ooh, the new soft shoe, yeah

Then a color t.v. broadcast snuck in from New Orleans
Showed me one more man who spoke and
wore bright blue and green
When you saw him talk his way was when
he shoed his claws
And spoke to people every day
just to get applause

Ooh, the new soft shoe
Ooh, the new soft shoe, yeah
Ooh, ooh the new soft shoe
Ooh, the new soft shoe, yeah
