Running sneakers

 

I bought myself

some running sneakers,

they are so nice but

Golly Jeepers!

 

They cost me a fortune,

like an arm and a leg.

Youd think Id brought the goose

that laid the golden egg.

 

But its all worth it cause now I,

 

Strut around the bars

and in the sleazy streets.

Thinking; Im the coolest dood

youre ever gonna meet.

 

Thinking, Im the coolest dood

youre ever gonna meet,

just because I have these shoes

that cost bloody heaps.
