Lyrics Mr. Bojangles

I knew a man
Bojangles and
He danced for you in worn out shoes
With silver hair a ragged shirt and baggy pants he would do the old soft shoe
He could jump so high jump so high
And then he'd lightly touch down
I met him in a cell in New Orleans I was while I was down and out
He looked to me to be the very eyes of age as he spoke right out
Talked of life
Lord he talked of life ah ah ah laughed slapped his leg and stepped
He said his name was
Bojangles and he danced a lick right across the cell
He grabbed his pants took a bitter stance jumped up high
That's when he clicked his heels
Then he let go a laugh
Lord he'd let go a laugh
Shook back his clothes all around
That was Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Lord he could dance
He told me of the times he worked for minstrel shows
Travelling through out the south
He spoke with tears of fifteen years
How his dog and he they just travel about
But his dog up and died dog up and died
And after twenty years he still greived
He said I danced now and every chance and honkey-tonks
For my drinks and tips
But most the time
I spend behind these country bars
You see son I
I drinks a bit
Then he shook his head
Lord, when he shook his head
I could swear
I heard someone
Say please
Mister Bojangles
Oh Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Come back and dance dance dance dance, dance
Oh Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles dance
Why can't you come back and dance?
Please Bojangles
Mmm mmm dance again Bojangles
