  • Early in the evenin',
    Just about supper time,
    Over by the court house
    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 poor boys are playin'
    Bring a nickel
    Tap your feet.

    Rooster hits the washboard
    And people just got 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 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.

    Down on the corner
    Out in the street.
    Willy and the poor boys are playin'
    Bring a nickel
    Tap your feet.
