Pink Shoe Laces
Dodie Stevens Lyrics


Now I've got a guy and his name is Dooley
He's my guy and I love him truly
He's not good lookin', heaven knows
But I'm wild about his crazy clothes

He wears tan shoes with pink shoelaces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
Tan shoes with pink shoelaces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band

Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh

He takes me deep-sea fishing in a submarine
We got to drive-in movies in a limousine
He's got a whirly-birdy and a 12-foot yacht
Ah, but that's-a not all he's got

He's got tan shoes with pink shoelaces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
Tan shoes with pink shoelaces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band

Now Dooley had a feelin' we were goin' to war
So he went out and enlisted in a fightin' corps
But he landed in the brig for raisin' such a storm
When they tried to put 'em in a uniform

He wanted tan shoes with pink shoelaces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
He wanted tan shoes with pink shoelaces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band

Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh

Now one day Dooley started feelin' sick
And he decided that he better make his will out quick
He said "Just before the angels come to carry me
I want it down in writin' how to bury me."

A'wearin tan shoes with pink shoelaces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
Give me tan shoes with pink shoelaces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band

Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh

And a big Panama with a purple hat band!!

In 1959 I was in the 2nd grade. There was a talent contest at our school. The prize was a set of classroom books. My teacher got together with my mother and entered me and fellow classmate, Ida Mae Melton in the contest. Mother made the complete outfit from the hat, vest, to the pink shoe laces. Ida sang the song as I danced across the stage behind her. We won the contest.

Nice! I hope you're still in touch with Ida Mae.

I guess you were born circa 1952.

@Toni Sumblin my late sisters were fraternal twins, and went from Mickey Mouse to ELVIS when THEY turned 13 in 1956, they already were smokers since 13 years of age, and one of them did not see her 50th birthday due to her habitual smoking and excess suntanning habits. :(
