Everything is right with new shoes
No, for once this remark was not stated by a girl. It’s from a fun-loving song by Paolo Nutini, a Scottish singer and songwriter I recently discovered. “New shoes” appears on his album ”These Streets” from 2006 and was also released as a single. These tune really lifts your mood, whenever you listen to it.
And, most important: It’s about shoes and that nothing makes your day more than a brandnew pair! Well, I guess most girls will agree with Mr Nutini and am kinda convinced that this “understanding” song is the major reason for his huge success ;)
Anyway, I don’t want to withhold the very lively and quite witty lyrics from you. Enjoy!
Woke up cold one tuesday,
i'm looking tired and feeling quite sick,
i felt like there was something missing in my day to day life,
so i quickly opened the wardrobe,
pulled out some jeans and a T-Shirt that seemed clean,
topped it off with a pair of old shoes,
that were ripped around the seams,
and i thought these shoes just don't suit me.
Hey, I put some new shoes on,
and suddenly everything is right,
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody's smiling,
it so inviting,
Oh, short on money,
but long on time,
slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
and i'm running late,
and i dont need an excuse,
'cause i'm wearing my brand new shoes.
Woke up late one thursday,
and i'm seeing stars as i'm rubbing my eyes,
and i felt like there were two days missing,
as i focused all the time,
and i made my way to the kitchen,
but i had to stop from the shock of what i found,
a room full of all my friends dancing round and round,
and i thought hello new shoes,
byebye them blues.
Take me wondering through these streets,
where bright lights and angels meet,
stone to stone they take me on,
im walking to the break of dawn.
