Lyrics

Early in the evenin', just about supper time
Over by the courthouse, they're startin' 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 Poor Boys 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
Poor Boy twangs the rhythm out, on his Kalamazoo
And Willy goes into a dance, doubles on kazoo

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys 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 Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willy and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet
