I knew a man Bojangles and he danced for you, in worn out shoes.
With silver hair a ragged shirt and baggy pants,
He did the old soft shoe.
He jumped so high, jumped so high,
Then he lightly touched down.
Mister Bojangles, Mister Bojangles,
Mister Bojangles, dance.
I met him in a cell in New Orleans I was down and out.
He said his name, Bojangles,
He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs throughout the south.
He said, "I dance now at every chance in honky tonks for drinks and tips.
