Get Rhythm


Hey get rhythm when you get the blues

C       G

Hey get rhythm when you get the blues Yes a jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine It’ll shake all the trouble from your worried mind

C      D7      G

Get rhythm when you get the blues

Little shoeshine boy never gets low down

But he’s got the dirtiest job in town

Bending low at the peoples’ feet

On the windy corner of the dirty street

Well I asked him while he shined my shoes

How’d he keep from getting the blues

He grinned as he raised his little head

Popped a shoeshine rag and then he said


Well I sat down to listen to the shoeshine boy

And I thought I was gonna jump for joy

Slapped on the shoe polish left and right

He took a shoeshine rag and he held it tight

He stopped once to wipe the sweat away

I said you’re a mighty little boy to be a-working that way

He said I like it with a big wide grin

Kept on a popping and he said again
