Clean shirt, new shoes
and I don't know where I am goin' to.
Silk suit, black tie,
I don't need a reason why.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

An...ahem...all-time classic! PINK SHOELACES (Mark Grant) Dodie Stevens - 1959 Also recorded by: The Chordettes Now I got a guy and his name is Dooley He's my guy and I love him truly! He's not good lookin', heaven knows! But I'm wild about his crazy clothes! He wears tan shoes with pink shoelaces A polka-dot vest, and man, oh man! He wears tan shoes with pink shoelaces, And a big panama with a purple hat band! He takes me deep sea diving in a submarine! We go to drive in moves in a limousine! He's got a whirly birdy and a twelve foot yacht! Ah, but that's a-not all he's got... He's got tan shoes with pink shoelaces A polka-dot vest, and man, oh man! He's got tan shoes with pink shoelaces, And a big panama with a purple hat band! Now Dooley had a feelin' we were goin' to war So he went out and enlisted in a fightin corps! But he landed in the brig for raisin' such a storm When they tried to put him in a uniform! He wanted tan shoes with pink shoelaces A polka-dot vest, and man, oh man! He wanted tan shoes with pink shoelaces, And a big panama with a purple hat band! How one day Dooley started feelin' sick, So he figured that he ought to make his will out quick! He said, "Just before the angels come to carry me, I want it down and right in how to burry me!" A-wearin tan shoes with pink shoelaces A polka-dot vest, and man, oh man! Give me tan shoes with pink shoelaces, And a big panama with a purple hat band! And a big panama with a purple hat band!

"Jeans On" - David Dundas (1976)

When I wake up in the mornin' light
I pull on my jeans and I feel all right
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on

It's the weekend, and I know that you're free
So pull on your jeans and come on out with me
Oh 'cause I need to have you near me,
I need to feel you close to me
I need to have you near me, I need to feel you close to me

You and me, we'll go motorbike ridin' in the sun
And the wind and the rain
I got money in my pocket, I got a tiger in my tank
And I'm king of the road again

I'll meet ya in the usual place
You don't need a thing except your pretty face, alright
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on
Aw, here we go mama

You and me, we'll go motorbike ridin' in the sun
And the wind and the rain
I got money in my pocket, I got a tiger in my tank
And I'm king of the road again

When I wake up in the mornin' light
I pull on my jeans and I feel all right
Hey I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on

I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on

This song originally appeared as a television advertising jingle for Brutus Jeans.
