    When an irresistible force such as you
    Meets an old immovable object like me
    You can bet just as sure as you live

    Lyrics
    I knew a man Bojangles and he danced for you
    In worn-out shoes
    Silver hair, a ragged shirt and baggy pants
    The old soft shoe
    He jumped so high
    Mr. Bojangles  -  124,712 plays

    Lyrics
    Hey there you with the stars in your eyes
    Love never made a fool of you, you used to be too wise.
    Hey there you on that high flying cloud
    Tho' she won't throw a crumb to you
    You think someday she'll come to you.
