"Tango Shoes" as written by and Beth Nicole/karroll Hopkins....
When we're together
I am alone
I doddle down the street
Shuffle my feet
Don't want to go home

There's an antique store
I go inside
All I got on me is only 20 bucks
And my pride
That's when I see them

My new tango shoes
There are my treasure
They are so cool
My new tango shoes
They are my ticket
My tools
My new tango shoes
There gonna help me dance away from you
My new tango shoes

Like Cinderella
I am transformed
Suddenly I'm taller your smaller
I am reborn
With new courage
I go downtown
To find you sitting at our table
Girls all around
And they see my

My new tango shoes
They are my treasure
They are so cool
My new tango shoes
They are my ticket
My tools
My new tango shoes
There gonna help me dance away from you
My new tango shoes

See my sexy man in my process
Right before your angry eyes
I stick around close in between my lips
I turn on my heel
And dance out of your life

You told me you love me
That was untrue
Now that were over
This dance is for you
Tango

My new tango shoes
They are my treasure
They are so cool
My new tango shoes
They are my ticket
My tools
My new tango shoes
There gonna help me dance away from you
My new tango shoes
They are my treasure
They are so cool
My new tango shoes
They are my ticket
My tools
My new tango shoes
There gonna help me dance away from you
My new tango shoes

    General CommentJust wanted to correct some of your lyrics since this damn site won't let me post any.

    "I doddle down the street shop, for my feet don't wanna go home"
    "All I got on me is only 20 bucks and my pride"
    "I see my sexy man among voices"
    "I turn around and dance out of your life"

    That's all :*)

    General Comment=] agrees with sixedheart. I kinda see my own tango shoes as one friend of mine whos a bit of an optimist and always pushes me and tries to motivate me. Even when im having the shittiest time. XD i suppose its how people interpret it. Its an ace song though. x x

    General CommentI'm a dood and I can relate to this. I mean it isnt really about Tango Shoes. It could be about anything. Something you find that'll lift your spirits after a really hard break up. I dunno...thats what it means to me.
