about

Original by Tommy Tucker in 1963, "Hi Heel Sneakers" has been covered by well over 1000 artists. Our version was inspired by Elvis Presley's great interpretation.

lyrics

Put on your red dress, baby
Lord, we're goin' out tonight
Put on your red dress, baby
Lord, we're goin' out tonight
Well wear some boxin' gloves
In case some fool might wanna fight (hear what I say)

Put on your high-heel sneakers
Wear your wig-hat on your head
Put on your high-heel sneakers
Slap that wig right on your head
I'm pretty sure now, baby
Pretty soon you're gonna knock 'em dead
(ah do the mess around now baby)

(Sax solo)


I've got my old crow liquor
And paycheck in my hand
Got my old crow liquor
I've got my paycheck in my hand
Big John’s bootleg whiskey cost much more than I can stand

Put on your high-heel sneakers
Wear your wig-hat on your head
Put on your high-heel sneakers
Wear your wig-hat on your head
Though you’re real high
I'm pretty sure you're gonna knock 'em dead
