A Shine on Your Shoes

A Shine on your Shoes song lyrics – as performed by Fred Astaire in The Band Wagon, written by Arthur Schwartz, Howard Dietz

When there’s a shine on your shoes,
There’s a melody in your heart,
With a singable, happy feeling,
What a wonderful way to start to face the world every day
With a “deedle-um-dee-di-di,”
Little melody that is making the world go by.
When you walk down the street with a happy-go-lucky beat,
You’ll find a lot in what I’m repeating
“When there’s a shine on your shoes,
There’s a melody in your heart,”
What a wonderful way to start the day.
