down on the corner lyrics – goo goo dolls

early in the evening, just about supper time
over by the courthouse, they’re startin’ to unwind
poor kids on the corner, tryin’ to bring you up
willie picks a tune out and he knows they gonna start

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and the poor boys are playin’
bring a nickel, tap your feet

johnny hits the washboard, people just gotta smile
robby thumbs a gut-b*ss and solos for a while
poor boy brings the rhythm on his kalamazoo
and willie goes into a dance, doubles on kazoo, hey

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and the poor boys are playin’
bring a nickel, tap your feet

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and the poor boys are playin’
bring a nickel, tap your feet

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and the poor boys are playin’
bring a nickel, tap your feet

you don’t need a penny just to hang around
but if you got a nickel, won’t ya lay your money down?
over on the corner, there’s a happy noise
people come from all around to watch the magic boy

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and the poor boys are playin’
bring a nickel, tap your feet

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and the poor boys are playin’
bring a nickel, tap your feet

down on the corner
out in the street
willie and the poor boys are playin’
bring a nickel, tap your feet
