Lyrics
I'm breaking in a brand new pair of shoes
Don't look at me like you think I've got the blues
'Cause I'm walking 'round and around and I'm seeing most of the town
I'm just breaking in a brand new pair of shoes

Ah ha so I'm talking to myself
Oh no she's not putting me on the shelf
I'm just breaking in a brand new pair of shoes

I'm doggone if I'm gonna cry the blues
My feet are sore but I've got no time to lose
'Cause I'm wanting her here with me and I'm needing her company
I'm just breaking in a brand new pair of shoes
