Early in the evenin’ 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.
Down on the corner, out in the street,
willy and the poorboys are playin’;

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.
Down on the corner, out in the street,
willy and the poorboys are playin’;
bring a nickel; tap your feet.
Down on the corner, out in the street,
willy and the poorboys are playin’;
bring a nickel; tap your feet.
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.
Down on the corner, out in the street,
willy and the poorboys are playin’;
bring a nickel; tap your feet.
Down on the corner, out in the street,
willy and the poorboys are playin’;
bring a nickel; tap your feet.
Down on the corner, out in the street,
willy and the poorboys are playin’;
bring a nickel; tap your feet.
