    Lyrics

    I knew a man Bojangles and he danced for you
    In worn out shoes
    Silver hair, a ragged shirt and baggy pants
    The old soft shoe

    He jumped so high
    He jumped so high
    Then he'd lightly touched down

    Mr Bojangles
    Mr Bojangles
    Mr Bojangles
    Dance

    I met him in a cell in New Orleans I was
    Down and out
    He looked to me to be the eyes of age
    As he spoke right out

    He talked of life
    He talked of life
    He lightly slapped his leg instead

    He said the name Bojangles and he danced a lick
    Across the cell
    He grabbed his pants for a better stance
    He jumped so high
    He clicked his heels

    He let go a laugh
    He let go a laugh
    Shook back his clothes all around

    Mr Bojangles
    Mr Bojangles
    Mr Bojangles
    Dance

    We danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs
    Throughout the south
    We spoke in tears of fifteen years
    How his dog and him
    They travelled about

    His dog up and died
    He up and died
    After twenty years he still grieves

    They said I dance now at every chance and honky tonks
    For drinks and tips
    But most the time I spend behind these county bars
    Cause I drinks a bit

    He shook his head and as he shook his head
    I heard someone ask please

    Mr Bojangles
    Mr Bojangles
    Mr Bojangles
    Dance

    Mr Bojangles
    Mr Bojangles
    Mr Bojangles
