Or should I sell her in Rangoon? It’s hard to say, I need some sound advice Will her bones decay in the sun? Or will we grow old as one? I would hate to have to roll the dice Oh, magic shoes You taught me how to drink How to tie a tie How to shoot a bull’s eye Oh, Magic Shoes I really need your help I need to take a stand I need to be a man I think I need to dance I think I need to dance Oh, Magic Shoes Teach me about romance! Will I really take her life? Or will I take her as my wife? What exactly is a man in love to do?
