There once lived a man who lived in a shoe

The shoe smelt of mildew

He hated it so

He wanted to go

But it was the only shoe he could afford

A shoe, A shoe, A shoe without a door

A shoe, A shoe, A shoe with a dirt floor

A shoe... A shoe.. that a man lived in

A shoe, A shoe, that was cursed a sin

This shoe, this shoe...

Smelled of mildew

This shoe, this shoe, smelly and old

This shoe, this shoe, all full of mold

Poor man, poor man, living in this shoe

Poor man, poor man, feeling so blue

Poor man, poor man, has no door

Poor man, poor man, has no floor

Sobbing day and night

The smell making him lose his sight

There once lived a man who lived in a shoe...
