I KNEW A MAN BOJANGLES
AND HE'D DANCE FOR YOU
IN WORN OUT SHOES

WITH SILVER HAIR A RAGGED SHIRT
AND BAGGY PANTS
THE OLD SOFT SHOE

HE JUMPED SO HIGH
HE JUMPED SO HIGH
THEN HE LIGHTLY TOUCHED DOWN

    chorus;
MISTER BOJANGLES
MISTER BOJANGLES
MISTER BOJANGES DANCE

I MET HIM IN A CELL
IN NEW ORLEANS
I WAS DOWN AND OUT

HE LOOKED AT ME TO BE
THE EYES OF AGE
AS HE SPOKE RIGHT OUT

HE TALKED OF LIFE
TALKED OF LIFE
HE LAUGHED SLAPPED HIS LEG A STEP

    chorus

HE SAID HIS NAME BOJANAGLES
THEN HE DANCED A LICK
ACROSS THE CELL

HE GRABBED HIS PANTS FOR A BETTER STANCE
THEN HE JUMPED SO HIGH
HE CLICKED HIS HEELS

THEN HE LET GO A LAUGH
LET GO A LAUGH
SHOOK BACK HIS CLOTHES ALL AROUND

    chorus   

HE DANCED FOR THOSE
AT MINSTREL SHOWS AND COUNTRY FAIRS
THROUGHOUT THE SOUTH

HE SPOKE WITH TEARS OF FIFTEEN YEARS
HOW HIS DOG AND HIM
TRAVELED ABOUT

HIS DOG UP AND DIED
HE UP AND DIED
AND AFTER TWENTY YEARS HE STILL GRIEVED

    chorus

HE SAID I DANCE NOW
AT EVERY CHANCE IN HONKY TONKS
FOR DRINKS AND TIPS


BUT MOST THE TIME I SPEND
BEHIND THESE COUNTRY BARS
FOR I DRINKS A BIT

HE SHOOK HIS HEAD
AND AS HE SHOOK HIS HEAD
I HEARD SOMEONE ASK PLEASE

    chorus
