New Shoes

New shoes, mine are all old and rotten

New shoes, self-care I've forgotten

New shoes, I'm going to let you buy them all 

New shoes, make a small girl a little taller

 

Take me to the show please, take me to the ball

I can do it all with my new shoes on 

Show me the gentlemen but tell them not to call

It's all a stunt to make you jealous, I can say it

 

Hot fool, streetcar and street social climber

You too, fed fake grass and fat designer 

Perfume, smells like dying dreams and ripped-up pleas for

New shoes, before I've got to get another job again won't you

 

Take me to the show please, take me to the ball

I can do it all with my new shoes on 

Show me the gentlemen but tell them not to call

It's all a stunt to make you jealous, I can say it

 

Take me to the show please, take me to the ball

I can do it all with my new shoes on 

Show me the gentlemen but tell them nothing's free

I'm gonna show you clearly just what you owe me 

 

New shoes
