# Debut Chart
3 Oct '69 Hot 100


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]
