A SPRING IN MY SHOE (SONG).


(v1) I am walking on air down a street in my neighborhood --
Passing the people who really don't care,

I will soon see the one who awaits my first overture, (pause),
She'll hear the lilt in my song and will notice me there, (to 2nd verse),

(v2) Only two blocks away I've been growing up for her --
Wanting courage to approach her and something to say,

She will never believe that I really do care for her --
All good things, she thinks, come from very far away,

(cho) It's hard just to settle down -- walk normally on the ground,
Even when I do, I can't suppress the bouncing sound,

I'm not Hopalong Cassidy, so what can I do?
I guess I'll just have to tell them I have a spring in my shoe, (pause),
I guess I'll just have to tell them (pause) that I have a spring in my shoe.
