    Lyrics

    'Cause my hair is curly
    Just because my teeth are pearly
    Just because I always wear a smile
    Like to dress up in the latest style

    'Cause I'm glad I'm livin'
    I take these troubles all with a smile
    Just because my color's shady
    That's the difference, maybe, why they call me

    Shine, sway your bluesies
    Why don't you shine?
    Start with your shoesies
    Shine each place up, make it look like new
    Shine your face up; I want to see you wear a smile or two

    Why don't you shine your these and thoseies?
    You'll find everything gonna turn out right fine
    Folks will shine up to ya
    Everybody's gonna howdy doody do-ya
    You'll make the whole world shine

    Oh, chocolate drop, that's me

    'Cause my hair is curly (man's got curly hair)
    Now just because my teeth are pearly (also got pearly teeth)
    Just because I always wear a smile (oh, keep on smiling)
    Like to dress us, babe, in the latest style

    'Cause I'm glad I'm livin'
    I take these troubles all with a smile
    Now just because my color's shady (you's a shady baby)
    That's the difference, maybe, why they call me

    Shine away your bluesies
    Shine, start with your shoesies
    You'll make the whole world shine
