Ella Fitzgerald

VERSE: 'Happy Jack ' known around the town as 'some' boot-black
Never worried tho' he worked like sin, had a grin guaranteed to bring the bus'ness in

Shine - your these and thos-ies ' you'll find that everything will turn out fine,
Folks will shine up to ya, everyone will 'howdy-do' ya,
You'll make the whole world shine'
