Lyrics

Early in the evenin' just about supper time,
Over by the courthouse they're starting to unwind.
Four kids on the corner trying to bring you up.
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp.

Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys are playin',
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.

Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile,
Blinky, thumps the gut bass and solos for a while.
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo.
Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo.

Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys are playin',
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.

Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys are playin',
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.

You don't need a penny just to hang around,
But if you've got a nickel, won't you lay your money down?
Over on the corner there's a happy noise.
People come from all around to watch the magic boy.

Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys are playin',
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.

Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys are playin',
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.

Down on the corner, out in the street,
Willy and the Poorboys are playin',
Bring a nickel, tap your feet.
