Early in the evenin', just about supper time
Over by the courthouse, they're starting to unwind
Four kids on the corner, trying to bring you up
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin'
Bring a nickel, tap your feet
Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile
Blinky thumps the gutbass and solos for a while
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo
And Willy goes into a dance, doubles on kazoo
You don't need a penny just to hang around
But if you've got a nickel, won't you lay your money down
Over on the corner there's a happy noise
People come from all around to watch the magic boys.
