french shoes lyrics – john mellencamp

he was a good lookin’ guy.
stood about six foot three,
long brown hair
as nice as he could be.
everybody liked him
but he didn’t have a clue,
he looked silly as h*ll
in those funny french shoes.

you know the type
without any heels,
leather soles,
kind of a slip on deal.
he was cavalier
whether he’d win or lose
but he looked silly as h*ll
in those funny french shoes.

i know it’s not right
to judge a man by his clothes,
by the way that he looks
or the people he may know.
i’m embarr*ssed to say
if i had to choose
i could never really trust
any man wearing those funny french shoes.

funny french shoes,
funny french shoes,
no man should be wearin’
those funny french shoes.
they look good on a woman’s foot.
i must say that they do
but no guy should be wearin’
those funny french shoes.

get some socks on, man!
