Hap -py Jack, known a -round the town as "some" boot -black,
Nev -er wor -ried tho' he worked like sin, Had a grin Guar -an -teed to bring the bus -'ness in,
Ev -'ry day when they'd ask him how he got that way,
He would tell 'em "If you en -vy me, Just try my re -ci -pe:"
Shine a -way your blues -ies,
Shine, start with your shoes -ies,
Shine each place up, make it look like new,
Shine your face up, wear a smile, or two,
Shine your these and tho -sies,
You'll find that ev' -ry -thing will turn out fine,
Folks will shine up to ya, Ev' -ry -one will how -dy -do ya,
You'll make the whole world shine.
