Lyrics

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.
