Lyrics

Early in the evening Just about supper time Over by the courthouse 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 [CHORUS] Down on the corner, out in the street Willy and the Poorboys are playing Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Rooster hits the washboard And people just got to 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 [repeat CHORUS 2x] 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 [repeat CHORUS 3x to fade]
