Lyrics

Early in the evenin' just about supper time Over by the courthouse they're starting to unwind Four kids on the corner trying to bring you up Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

Down on the corner Out in the street Willy and the Poor Boys are playin' Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile Blinky thumps the gut bass and solos for a while Poor Boy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo And Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo

Down on the corner Out in the street Willy and the Poor Boys are playin' Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner Out in the street Willy and the Poor Boys are playin' Bring a nickel, tap your feet

You don't need a penny just to hang around But if you've got a nickel, won't you lay your money down? Over on the corner there's a happy noise People come from all around to watch the magic boy

Down on the corner Out in the street Willy and the Poor Boys are playin' Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner Out in the street Willy and the Poor Boys are playin' Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner Out in the street Willy and the Poor Boys are playin' Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner Out in the street Willy and the Poor Boys are playin' Bring a nickel, tap your feet
