Get Rhythm Lyrics

Hey get rhythm when you get the blues

Come on get rhythm when you get the blues

Get a rock 'n' roll feelin' in your bones

Put taps on your toes and get gone

Get rhythm when you get the blues

A Little shoeshine boy never gets low down

But he's got the dirtiest job in town

Bendin' low at the peoples' feet

On the windy corner of the dirty street

Well I asked him while he shined my shoes

How'd he keep from gettin' the blues

He grinned as he raised his little head

Popped a shoeshine rag and then he said

Get rhythm when you get the blues

Come on get rhythm when you get the blues

A jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine

It'll shake all the trouble from your worried mind

Get rhythm when you get the blues

 

Get rhythm when you get the blues

Come on get rhythm when you get the blues

Get a rock 'n' roll feelin' in your bones

Put taps on your toes and get gone

Get rhythm when you get the blues

 

Well I sat down to listen to the shoeshine boy

And I thought I was gonna jump for joy

Slapped on the shoe polish left and right

He took a shoeshine rag and he held it tight

He stopped once to wipe the sweat away

I said you're a mighty little boy to be a workin' that way

He said I like it with a big wide grin

Kept on a poppin' and he said again

Get rhythm when you get the blues

Come on get rhythm when you get the blues

It only costs a dime just a nickel a shoe

Does a million dollars worth of good for you

 

Get rhythm when you get the blues
