Mr. Bojangles Lyrics

I knew a man Bojangles
And he'll dance for you
In worn out shoes

With silver hair, a ragged shirt
And baggy pants
He would do the old soft shoe

He would jump so high
Jump so high
Then he'd lightly touch down

He told me of the time he worked with
With minstrel shows
Travelling throughout the south

He spoke with tears for fifteen years
How his dog and he
They would travel about.

But his dog up and died
He up and died
And after twenty years he still grieves

He said "I dance now
At every chance in the Honky Tonks
For my drinks and tips

But most the time I
I spend behind these county bars
You see son I, I drinks a bit"

Then he shook his head
Oh lord when he shook his head
I could swear I heard somebody say please, please

There's Mister Bojangles
Call him Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles come back and dance and dance and dance, please dance

Mister Bojangles, Mister Bojangles, Mister Bojangles
Come back and dance and dance and dance, please dance

Come back and dance again Mr Bojangles
