The Cobbler With The Chocolate Shoes
He worked all day and he worked all night to get each shoe in line
people came and people went," how much, can you fix mine ?"
"take a number" he would say and then, he sewed in time..
The cobbler man was one of a kind, he never robbed them blind
Each day they would return to find a polished pair so nicely shined
Over by the shelf there sat a pair of ladies chocolate coated shoes
Size 9 fits all , the sale tag read, for you, only $9.99
He rang up the sale and with a smile he gave her a warning wad
"Never wear them in the rain, and oh ! "Happy Valentine's Day"
She wore them out that day 5 feet six inches tall and very proud.
but when the rain arrived with pelting drops of wet she cried
"Oh no !" The chocolate shoes turned velvet red, the color of
the devil's ked. But Cupid knew that Satan had no hand at love,
so he aimed and shot the target right, and a gentle man with
chocolate shoes arrived and said, "The cobbler right ?" She smiled
a nervous smile "Yes" I know, I paid him too, only 9.99 right" "Yes"
Then she knitted a frown and said," but your shoes are still brown"
"Ah yes, well, they got varathane. "
and suddenly her eyes began to shine, "would you be my Valentine?"
