  • sammy davis jr, dean martin*, bob dylan, nina simone* ve daha bir suru kisi tarafindan coverlanmis jerry jeff walker sarkisi...

    i knew a man bojangles and he danced for you
    in worn out shoes;
    with silver hair, a ragged shirt, and baggy pants,
    the old soft shoe.
    he jumped so high, he jumped so high,
    then he'd lightly touch down
    mr. bojangles, mr. bojangles, mr. bojangles,
    dance!
    i met him in a cell in new orleans, i was
    down and out.
    he looked to me to be the eyes of age
    as he spoke right out
    he talked of life, he talked of life,
    he laugh-slapped his leg a step.

    he said the name, bojangles, and he danced a lick
    across the cell.
    he grabbed his pants, a better stance, he jumped up high,
    he clicked his heels.
    he let go a laugh, he let go a laugh,
    shook back his clothes all around.
    mr. bojangles, mr. bojangles, mr. bojangles,
    dance!

    he danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs
    throughout the south.
    he spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and him
    had traveled about.
    his dog up and died, he up and died,
    after 20 years he still grieves.
    mr. bojangles, mr. bojangles, mr. bojangles,
    dance!

    he said "i dance now at ev'ry chance in honky tonks
    for drinks and tips.
    but most of the time i spend behind these county bars
    'cause 'i drinks a bit."
    he shook his head, and as he shook his head i heard someone ask "please,
    mr. bojangles, mr. bojangles, mr. bojangles,
    dance!"
