"Two Shoes" as written by and Felix Riebl....
One day one woman asked him
‘what do you to survive?’
he said ‘oh my dear listen here’
and this is what he cried

On my feet I wear two shoes for dancing
‘dancing to be free’
my feet they’re paying tribute to
the Bobby Marley legacy

My knees they’ve got some cuts and bruises
from skating all my days
when i’m skating with my friends
my troubles drift away

I say my legs they’re wearing baggy pants
I like to move around
cos getting down and jumping up
these are some good things that I found

Aeehhhiiiaaaaa
boom shak the empire be rising
Aeehhhiiiaaaaa
boom shak we making some lovin
Aeehhhiiiaaaaa
boom shak the greedy men running
Aeehhhiiiaaaaa
boom shak got two shoes for dancin

My waist it’s got a slinky belt
with a clip that’s quick to open
because loving is the sweetest thing
and from my waist it happen

And my stomachs got some tasty food
that’s making me feel good
cos sharing some meals is something
i wish the world could do

And my chest it wears a singlet
ah my chest it beating proud
my chest suggest I am a man
that no institution can knock down
And around my neck is superstition
hanging from a chain
because i’ve got my gods but in the end
I make my own way

CHORUS

My mouth it’s got a great big smile
that shows some great big teeth
to friends it brings a happiness
and to enemies it means defeat

And my eyes they’ve got some vision
that can see through many lies
ah my eyes they look for better things
the better things to see in life

And my ears are wearing head phones
that do play my favourite songs
not music i’m told to like
but the songs that make me dance along

Cos on my feet are shoes for dancing
‘dancing to be free’
my feet they’re paying tribute to
the bobby marley legacy

    General CommentSuch a cool song, Felix rules so much I named my son after him! I'm always amazed by the seemingly throwaway lines that always seem to come back to me when I'm thinking about something else, like

    'around my neck is superstition hanging from a chain,
    'cos I've got my gods but in the end I make my own way'

    which is a pretty damning view of religion, and quite similar to my own, all in two simple lines. And I love the lines about his belt 'with a clip that's quick to open'.

    So bloody clever and talented these Australians, eh?

    General CommentFishiesWillLaugh, I don't think that that is a 'damning view' of religion at all, it's just Felix's personal take, but he seems to agree that everyone can do what they choose, 'make their own way'.

    In this song it feels like Felix is taking an inventory of all his traits, all the little things that make him who he is.

    I love it!
