Lyrics

Choose Your Shoes

 
When you are singing, "Rain, Rain, Go Away"
You must select the best costume for the day
And then before your outfit is complete
You must be sure not to forget your feet
Some flippy-flops, or dress-ups with heels so high
Just will not keep your tootsies warm and dry
Instead you'll want to yell, "Well, oh my gosh
Is there anything better than galoshes?"
(chorus)
You've got to choose wisely, choose carefully
When you choose your shoes
You've got to stop and think what your feet will need
So you'll know which ones to use.
 
When at the beach, your footwear should have some ease
So that your toes can feel all the salty breeze
Big cowboy boots or sneakers would be a scandal
You need instead a nice, light sandal!
 
(repeat chorus)
 
And when the day is through and it's time to rest
There's just one more footwear selection test
You might think hiking boots seem so much hipper
But with your PJs goes a comfy slipper!
 
(repeat chorus)
