Robbie Williams Mr. Bojangles songtekst

I knew a man BojanglesAnd he’d dance for youIn worn out shoes With silver hair a ragged shirtAnd baggy pantsHe would do the old soft shoeHe would jump so highJump so highThen he lightly touch downHe told me of the time he worked withMinstrel shows travellingThroughout the southHe spoke with tears of fifteen yearsHow his dog and heThey would travel about.But his dog up and diedHe up and diedAnd after twenty years he still grievedHe said “I dance nowAt every chance in the Honky TonksFor my drinks and tipsBut most the time I spendBehind these country barsYou see on I drinks a bit”Then he shook his headOh lord when he shook his headI could swear I heard someone say pleaseMister BojanglesCall him Mister BojanglesMister Bojangles come back and dance please

Come back and dance again Mr Bojangles
