Better Watch Your Step (It's The Charleston Shoe Thieves)

September 3, 2020 1:01 PM

A jazzy bit of fair warning, from the Charleston dugout's own Esme Ramsey Quartet. Featuring Esme on vox and upright bass, Joe Voorhees on piano, Gunther O'Brian on drums, and Antonio "Bony" Wallace taking a solo on his own xylophonic ribcage.

Lyrics:

Better watch your step
Better watch where your feet are going
Better lace up tight
You'll be in socks without even knowing

Whose shoes?
Our shoes!
How many pair of
Footwear can you lose
You better watch your step

Around the Charleston Shoe Thieves

You got some fancy sneaks?
Some sleight of hand they're
Slightly off your feet
Those Louboutins look great!
Oh, you wanted to keep them?
You're a blink of an eye too late

Whose kicks?
Our kicks?
How many stilettos and
Sandals can we nick?
You get used to being barefoot
Really quick

Around the Charleston Shoe Thieves
Better watch your step
Around the Charleston Shoe Thieves
(ad lib etc)
