Lyrics

 

Mr. Bojangles - Harry Nilsson (哈利·尼爾森)

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

 

Jump so high

Jump so high

 

Then he'd lightly touch down

 

I met him in a cell

In New Orleans

I was down and out

 

He looked to me to be the very eyes of age

 

As he spoke right out

 

Talked of life

 

Talked of life

 

Laughed slapped his leg and stepped

 

He said the name Bojangles

And he danced a lick

 

Across the cell

 

Grabbed his pants

A better stance

And wow he jumped up high

 

Clicked his heels

 

He let go a laugh

 

Let go a laugh

 

Shook back his clothes all around

 

Mr Bojangles

 

Mr Bojangles

 

Mr Bojangles

 

Dance

 

He danced with those at minstrel

Shows & county fairs

 

Throughout The South

 

He spoke with tears

Of fifteen years

Of how his dog and him

 

Had traveled about

 

His dog up and died

 

He up and died

 

After twenty years he still greives

 

He said I dance

Now and every chance at

Honkey-tonks

 

For drinks and tips

 

But most of time

I spend behind these country bars

 

Cause I drinks a bit

 

He shook his head

 

And as he shook his head

 

I heard someone ask please

 

Mr Bojangles

 

Mr Bojangles

 

Mr Bojangles

 

Dance
