    Four little skinny-legged, peezy headed boys
    You could tell they are poor
    Sneakers either worn through to the socks
    Or two sizes to big
    Hand-me-downs for sure
    Tee-shirts a bit too tight
    Shorts a bit too baggy for 1960

    But them boys sure could get in trouble
    Harmless as the games they played
    Everyone loved them
    Just skinny-legged, peezy headed boys
    Always looking for something to do
    Got too much energy to hang around

    Their favorite past-time
    Jumping the turnstile
    Gettin on the "A" train
    Heading up-town
    Little black boys going to do some dreaming

    "I'm gonna get me a car like that"
    "Doorman gonna be opening the door for me"
    "I'm gonna have me 50 of them suits"
    "I'll go to the movies every day"

    How this would happen was never a thought
    But those dream and many more came true
    Skinny-legged, peezy headed boys
    Grew up fast, smart and able
    But they will always be
    Four little skinny-legged, peezy headed boys
    Running around
    Looking for something to do
