Truman was a Shoeman

He was a rather dapper haberdasher down in Kansas City

But he traded in the suits and ties for campaigns and committees

But though he went on to become a U.S. President

It never stopped him from his first passion - being a dashing gent.


Truman was a shoeman. 

He got his kicks in with nice kicks

Truman was a shoeman

His pairs numbered 96!


Oxfords, slippers, cleats, and clogs

He’d slow for a loafer, lace up for a jog

Sneakers, sandals, or deck shoes

Putting on a snazzy pair could take away his blues


Truman was a shoeman. 

He got his kicks in with nice kicks

Truman was a shoeman

His pairs numbered 96!

Saddle shoes, wingtips, and monk strap

A different shoe for day or night for salsa or tap

In boots he felt like he was walking in heaven

And in case you want to buy him more, Harry’s a size 7.

Truman was a shoeman. 

He got his kicks in with nice kicks

Truman was a shoeman

His pairs numbered 96!
