In the shoemaker's shop 
This refrain would never stop
As he tapped away
Working all the day. 

At his bench there was he
Just as busy as a bee
Little time to lose
With the boots and shoes. 

But his heart went pop
Inside the little shop
When a lovely girl
Set him all a whirl. 

She had come to choose
Some pretty dancing shoes
And he heard her say
In her charming way, 

"Shoes to set my feet a-dancing, dancing,
Dancing, dancing all the day.
Shoes to set my feet a-dancing, dancing, 
Dancing all my cares away." 

Then he tapped and he stitched
For his fingers were bewitched
And he sewed a dream
Into every seam. 

Making shoes, oh so neat
Just like magic on her feet
And he hoped she'd know
That he loved her so. 

But she danced, danced, danced
As tho' she were entranced
Like a spinning top
All around the shop. 

On her dainty feet 
She whirled into the street
And he heard her say 
As she danced away, 

"Shoes to set my feet a-dancing, dancing, 
Dancing, dancing all the day. 
"Shoes to set my feet a-dancing, dancing, 
Dancing all my cares away."
