Two Shoes
The Cat Empire Lyrics

One day one woman asked him
"what do you to survive?"
he said "oh my dear listen here"
and this is what he cried

On my feet I wear two shoes for dancing
dancing to be free
my feet they're paying tribute to
the Bobby Marley legacy
My knees they've got some cuts and bruises
from skating all my days
when I'm skating with my friends
my troubles drift away

I say my legs they're wearing baggy pants
I like to move around
cos getting down and jumping up
these are some good things that I found

boom shak the empire be rising
boom shak we making some lovin'
boom shak the greedy men running
boom shak got two shoes for dancin'

My waist it's got a slinky belt
with a clip that's quick to open
because loving is the sweetest thing
and from my waist it happen

And my stomachs got some tasty food
that's making me feel good
cos sharing some meals is something
I wish the world could do

And my chest it wears a singlet
ah my chest it beating proud
my chest suggest I am a man
that no institution can knock down
And around my neck is superstition
hanging from a chain
because I've got my gods but in the end
I make my own way


My mouth it's got a great big smile
that shows some great big teeth
to friends it brings a happiness
and to enemies it means defeat

And my eyes they've got some vision
that can see through many lies
ah my eyes they look for better things
the better things to see in life

And my ears are wearing head phones
that do play my favourite songs
not music I'm told to like
but the songs that make me dance along

Cos on my feet are shoes for dancing
dancing to be free
my feet they're paying tribute to
the bobby marley legacy
