Lyrics for Down On The Corner by Bo Diddley :
[Verse 1]
Early in the evening just about supper time
Over by the courthouse they’re starting to unwind
Four kids on the corner trying to bring you up
Willy picks a tune out and he blows it on the harp

[Chorus]
Down On The Corner out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playing
Bring a nickel; tap your feet

[Verse 2]
Rooster hits the washboard and people just got to smile
Blinky thumps the gut bass and solos for a while
Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his kalamazoo
Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo

[Chorus][x2]

[Verse 3]
You don’t need a penny just to hang around
But if you’ve got a nickel, won’t you lay your money down?
Over on the corner there’s a happy noise
People come from all around to watch the magic boy

[Chorus][x3]
