Eddie Kendricks

Shoeshine boy
How you do your work so well
Shoeshine boy
Tryin' to make a livin, you go somewhere
Shoeshine boy
Where are you gonna be ten years from now
(Just move, just keep workin')

Shoeshine boy, I wanna know
Are you gonna be the richest man around
You've been a-workin' so hard
So many things in life to learn
Shoeshine boy, what will you discover

Though it's a long way up, you'll reach the top
Now when you'll finally get back
(Don't forget) forget (where) you come
Shoeshine boy, workin' so hard in the noon day sun
(Just, just keep workin')

(Shoeshine boy) look at ya now, gettin' it together
Teasing the guys and havin' lots of fun
Shoeshine boy, yeah, don't you know that you're a star
(Yeah, you're a star)

(Shoeshine boy) just the way, just the way that you are
You've been a-workin' so hard
So many things in life to learn (So much to learn)
Shoeshine boy, what will you discover

Yeah, shoeshine boy
Shoeshine boy
You've been a-workin' so hard
Shoeshine boy

Don't you know that you're a star
Hmmmm, that's the way that you are
