Bojangles of Harlem Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Ask anyone up Harlem way
Who that guy Bojangles is
They may not know who's president
But just ask 'em who Bojangles is
Verse 2
He's in the most entrancin' business
It's what they call the "dancin' business"
When there's a beat
Up on the street
Brother, you go and bet all your dough!
Sister, you know!
That ain't no one but Bo!
Verse 3
Oh! Bojangles of Harlem
You dance such hot stuff!
Young folks love you in Harlem
They say you've got stuff!
Tough guys rumba out of poolrooms
And kids start "truckin'" out of schoolrooms!
Verse 4
Oh! Bojangles of Harlem!
The whole town's at your heels!
Leaving their flats
Missing their meals!
Running like rats
Going astray
Throw those long legs away!
