Pointed Toe Shoes - Carl Perkins

Pointed Toe Shoes

Carl Perkins

(Carl Perkins, COLUMBIA 4-41379, 1959)

Well, there's a brand new style goin' 'round
Hypnotizing the cats in town
Living in a walking dream
A pointed toe that's what I mean

[Chorus]
I said, pointed toes are coming back again
Ah-ah-ah, pointed toes are coming back again
Well, everything's alreet
When I got 'em on my feet
I said, the point's coming back again

Well, they're made from high colored dye
Long and lean, narrow and keen
Some are brown, some are black
A cat starts a-walking he's a-easy to track

[Chorus]

Well, sharp toed and high heeled
And a buckle on the side
Zip 'em up and lace 'em up
In any old style
I won't have to worry
Who's stepping on my blues
A keen cutting cat with my pointed toe shoes

[Chorus]

Rock!
Sharp toes, I want a pointed shoe
Ah-ah-ah, sharp toes, I want a pointed shoe
Ooh-yeah-yeah, I want a pointed shoe
Ah-ah-ah, sharp toes, I want a pointed shoe
Well, eveything's alreet
When I got 'em on my feet
I said, the point's coming back again
