Sole Sister: Rukia
New Shoes
Educator/ Poet/ Mother/ Friend
Toronto, Canada

Hey Salma, here's a song I want to share with all the Sole Sisters. I have to say as a mom of 6 kids ranging from teenagers to a pre-schooler that I buy a lot of shoes, but guess what, I never buy shoes for myself. I thought it would be more appropriate to put my wishful thinking into my submission.

Hope you enjoy it.

New Shoes –Paolo Nutini:

“Hey, I put some new shoes on,
And suddenly everything is right,
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody’s smiling,
It so inviting…

Lyrics:
woke up cold one Tuesday
I'm looking tired and feeling quite sick
I felt like there was something missing in my day to day life
so I quickly opened the wardrobe
pulled out some jeans and a T-Shirt that seemed clean
topped it off with a pair of old shoes
that were ripped around the seams
and I thought these shoes just don't suit me

hey I put some new shoes on
and suddenly everything is right
I said hey I put some new shoes on
and everybody's smiling
it so inviting owh
short on money
but long on time
slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
and I'm running late
and I don't need an excuse
'cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes

Woke up late one Thursday
And I'm seeing stars as I'm rubbing my eyes
And I felt like there were two days missing
As I focused all the time
And I made my way to the kitchen
But I had to stop from the shock of what I found
a room full of all my friends all dancing round and round
and I thought hello new shoes
bye bye blues

hey I put some new shoes on
and suddenly everything is right
I said hey I put some new shoes on and everybody's smiling
it so inviting owh
short on money
but long on time
slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
and I'm running late
and I don't need an excuse
'cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes

take me wondering through these streets
where bright lights and angels meet
stone to stone they take me on
I'm walking till the break of dawn

take me wondering through these streets
where bright lights and angels meet
stone to stone they take me on
I'm walking till the break of dawn

hey I put some new shoes on
and suddenly everything is right
I said hey I put some new shoes on and everybody's smiling
it so inviting owh
short on money
but long on time
slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
and I'm running late
and I don't need an excuse
'cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes

owh hey I put some new shoes on
and suddenly everything is right
I said hey I put some new shoes on and everybody's smiling
it so inviting owh
short on money
but long on time
slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
and I'm running late
and I don't need an excuse
'cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes

Take me wondering through these streets

Rukia, I can convince my hubby that I need new shoes with this song.

Thanks for sharing.
