    Though you haven't many toys
    You don't envy any boys
    Every day's a work day,
    Your work is just a game
    I'd like to sing your praise
    but I don't know your name

    You're just a shoe shine boy
    You work hard all day
    Shoe shine boy
    Got no time to play
    Every nickel helps a lot
    So shine, shine, shoe shine boy.

    You find joy in the things you do
    Shoe shine boy seldom ever blue
    You're content with what you've got
    So shine, shine, shoe shine boy.

    People look at you with scorn
    'cos your clothes are worn and torn
    Still you never whine
    You keep looking up and down the street
    Pleading with each one you meet
    Brother can you spare a shine.

    Oh, Shoe shine boy soon the day will come
    Shoe shine boy soon a tune you'll hum
    Every nickel helps a lot
    So shine, shine, shoe shine boy.

    Shoe shine, shoe shine boy
