Words and Music by Will Wythe.

O I'm happy Sam, the bootblack, I have happened here by chance;
If you'll give me your attention, I will do a song and dance.
I ain't no dude nor dandy, but a sport, you bet I am,
And the boys and girls wot know me well, all call me Happy Sam. Out

Shine, shine, shine, I will do 'em for a nickel;
Shine, shine, shine, or yer russets for a dime.
Shine, shine, clime, and yer corns I'll only tickle;
Satin gloss or patent leather every time.

O I never bet on horses, never to the races go;
Never speculate in Wall Street, 'cos I hasn't got the dough;
But when I wants ter gamble, it is just my pride and joy
For ter play the craps wit boothlack chaps, for I'm a sporty boy. Oh!- Chorus.
