TIME FOR NEW SHOES?

TIME FOR NEW SHOES?

(Parody lyrics for THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS)

My right foot tends to wear down

The outside of the heel,

Some waxed floors catch me sliding

On that patch–what a thrill (?)…

I’ve barely worn these shoes for long,

Just six months to a year,

For some of that I sat

Confined to an easy chair!

I’ll have more foot surgery

In a few weeks,

Some stuff needs removing

’cause the original wound still leaks…

I hope these size twelves still fit

When I go to the job,

If I get caught be home nursing

i will not earn a bob!

If I ‘m transferred to home nursing

I will not earn a bob!
