The Dance Of The Shoes
Mireille Mathieu

All day and all night long
They laugh and they sing songs
In the shoe repair shop.
They're having a dance,
So take my hand and come with me,
Then you will see a fantasy.

Poor shoemaker, how will you get all your mending done,
When those crazy shoes would rather have some fun?
Clogs are standing one by one all teetering in a row,
Dancing or a stumbling on their heels and toes.
Big floppy slippers that also look happy
Dance around while holding hands.
Bright fancy bunch with their heels all a chapping,
Everyone knows how to dance.

Poor shoemaker, don't be mad all day and all night long,
Take your saxophone and play a happy song!

Poor shoemaker, how will you get all your mending done.
When those crazy shoes would rather have some fun?
Take the fairest sandal pick and turn out many more.
Jumping up and down their seams throughout the store.
As for the boots with their leathery faces,
They don't want to go to bed,
Spinning and twirling their shabby shoe laces,
They will soon be turning red.
Poor shoemaker, don't be mad all day and all night long,
Take your saxophone and play a happy song!
