"Air Force Ones" (by Nelly, 2002)

[Intro]
Big boy.. Big boy.. Big boy

[Chorus]
I said give me two pairs
(cause) I need two pairs
So I can get to stomping in my air force ones
(Big boys) stomping in my air force ones

[Nelly]
I like the all white high top strap with the gum bottom
(Big boy) there's something bout them that's dirty why I got 'em
(Big boy) I leave um strapped and laced and come up out um
(Big Boy) the last person who touched 'em I been shot 'em (big boy)

[Kyjuan]
Now if you looked, and seen lime green forces and kiwi
(Big boy) you couldn't get this color if you had a personal genie
(Big boy) you now I keep it hip-hop
My n****s flip flop
(Big boy) yea my force ones and tip top
(Me) now form a flip flop, (big boy)

[Ali]
I like the limited edition to kaki and army green
(Big boy) patent leather pin stripe you should see how I do the strings
(Big boy) size twelve with the strap
Red and white with a cardinal cap
(Big boy) all flavors well it just depend
on when and (don't get me) where I am at (Big boy)

[Murphy Lee]
Don't get me wrong man
And Murphy lee ain't dumb man
(Big boy) cause if the shoe is on the shelf you should have some man
(Big boy) you can not sit up and tell me that you have none man
(Big boy) you may not have three or four but you got one man (big boy)

[Chorus x2]

[Murphy Lee]
We up in footlocker I'm looking like I need those
(Big boy) ten in a half and if you got em give me two of those
(Big boy) I can tell she never seen Murphy Lee before
(Big boy) cause shes just standing there as if I'm shooting free throws
(Big boy) I said excuse me miss I only wanna buy shoes
(Big boy) she said I love you Murph especially in the white in blue
(Big boy) I said the white in blue sound nice make it twice
(Big boy) and I signed an (yo) autograph
(yo) "thanks for the advice" (big boy)

[Ali]
I keep it real dirty, dirty you know how I do
(Big boy) purple in gold with the Lakers the broncos the orange in blue
(Big boy) I like em floppy with ankle socks
lows mids and high tops, (big boy) With the clear sole,
But this tims and fat laces with it is cold
(Big boy) but when the winter goes (blhhha) and the hot summer flows
(Big boy) then its back to the all purpose with em and dots in the toe
(Big boy) then I'm stopping this dough that I'm spending fa sure
(Big boy) on them Nike air force "N" "E" behind the "O" (big boy)

[Kyjuan]
O.. k li, I treat my shoe like my ride
(Big boy) chrome on the fat laces at what wood on the inside
(Big boy) spray candy on the swoosh
With the electric poofs
(Big boy) since I put a kit on the sole now I got a wider shoe
(Big boy) you see that low misk with the purple coop I'm driving them
(Big boy), (Kyjuan, where you getting them colors, are you dying them)
(Big boy) ten is my size in them
No point in tiein them
(Big boy) ain't no point in trying these on
You know I'm buying them (big boy)

[Nelly]
Now don't nothing get the hype on first site like, white on whites
(Big boy) them three quarters them lows they all tyte
(Big boy) the only problem they only good for one night
(Big boy) cause once you scuff um you f****d up your whole night
(Big boy) whats my basis? The look up sto on his faces
(Big boy) this kids outrageous hes buying them by the cases
(Big boy) cause once I cop um gut um and switch the laces
(Big boy) they all purpose ya heard me kinda like my Dayton's (big boy)

[Chorus x2]

[Kyjuan]
I wore spurs at first now theres tape on them
(Big Boy) damn, when those come out so I write the date on them
(Big Boy) these Louies Vuitton ones, you gotta wait on them
(Big boy) I had to get em early so I spent more cake on them (big boy)

[Murphy Lee]
Look I'm trying to keep it up like a one minute man
(Big boy) while Ali on the Kawasaki two head bands
(Big boy) jewelry and all
(Wow) fish bowl in the mall
(Big Boy), (I got some fifteens) security buying shoes and all (big boy)

[Nelly]
Now some time I get em free some time I gotta pay
(Big boy) walk in the mall and they now what I'm bout to say
(Big boy) gimme the black and platinum, and leather gray
(Big boy) ones in the back and (yo)
the pair you got on display (check), (big boy)

[Ali]
Now were the boxes were I keep mine (keep mine)
You should beep mine (big boy), (beep mine)
Maybe once or twice but never three times
(Big boy) I'm just a sneaker pro
I love pumas and shell toes
(Big boy) but cant nothing compare to a fresh crispy white pair (big boy)

[Chorus x2]

Big boy.. Big boy.. Big boy

Although this song is not really referencing shoes, I do like goody two-shoes by Adam ant.:icon_smile_big:

With the heartbreak open
So much you can't hide
Put on a little makeup, makeup
Make sure they get your good side, good side

If the words un[Spoken]
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token, token
Write it on a pound note, pound note

Goody two, goody two
Goody, goody two shoes
Goody two, goody two
Goody, goody two shoes
Don't drink, don't smoke
What do you do
Don't drink, don't smoke
What do you do
Subtle innuendos follow
There must be something inside

We don't follow fashion
That would be a joke
You know we're going to set them, set them
So everyone can take note, take note

When they saw you kneeling
Crying words that you mean
Opening their eyeballs, eyeballs
Pretending that you're Al Green, Al Green

Goody two, goody two
Goody, goody two shoes
Goody two, goody two
Goody, goody two shoes
Don't drink, don't smoke
What do you do
Don't drink, don't smoke
What do you do
Subtle innuendos follow
There must be something inside

No one's gonna tell me
What's wrong or what's right
Or tell me who to eat with, sleep with
Or that I've won the big fight, big fight

Look out or they'll tell you
You're a Superstar
Two weeks and you're an all time legend
I think the games have gone much too far

If the words un[Spoken]
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token, token
Write it on a pound note, pound note

Don't drink, don't smoke
What do you do
Don't drink, don't smoke
What do you do
Subtle innuendos follow
Must be something inside

Don't drink, don't smoke
What do you do
Don't drink, don't smoke
What do you do
Subtle innuendos follow
Must be something inside

Cruiser, you know I can't do no stinkin' YouTube because of the dial-up. It looks good tho. Is this a woman singing?

Woke up cold one tuesday,
I'm looking tired and feeling quite sick,
I felt like there was something missing in my day to day life,
So I quickly opened the wardrobe,
Pulled out some jeans and a T-Shirt that seemed clean,
Topped it off with a pair of old shoes,
That were ripped around the seams,
And I thought these shoes just don't suit me.
CHORUS:
Hey, I put some new shoes on,
And suddenly everything is right,
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody's smiling,
It so inviting,
Oh, short on money,
But long on time,
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
And I'm running late,
And I dont need an excuse,
'cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes.
Woke up late one thursday,
And I'm seeing stars as I'm rubbing my eyes,
And I felt like there were two days missing,
As I focused all the time,
And I made my way to the kitchen,
But I had to stop from the shock of what I found,
A room full of all my friends dancing round and round,
And I thought hello new shoes,
Byebye them blues.
CHORUS
Take me wondering through these streets,
Where bright lights and angels meet,
Stone to stone they take me on,
I'm walking to the break of dawn. (x2)​
CHORUS (x2)
Take me wondering through these streets

.....and it is rather clear that it is not a woman singing.... on any of these examples.

(Owners of hand-cranked computers need not click.)

Look, I was able to get this PC with food stamps because it's made by Progresso, so laugh away, but it's a sad, sad day when a man has to depart his own thread simply because he chooses to spend his money on smokes rather than DSL.​

"I walked into this bar and the man refused,
He said, 'we don't serve strangers in blue suede shoes,
We don't give credit, we don't give way,
We have to think about what the people might say' "

"I've got my Hush Puppies on

Yes, but how many people here actually wear Hush Puppies? I bought my first pair in the mid-60's (before Buffett said he wore them) and I've had at least one pair almost continuously since then. I'm wearing a pair as I type this. :icon_smile_big:
