Lyrics:



Those silk shiny stockings
That I wear when I'm with you
I wear 'cause you told me
That you dig that crazy hue

Do we think of romance
When we go to a dance
Oh no, you take a glance
At those shiny stockings

Then came along some chick
With great big stockings, too
When you changed your mind about me
Why, I never knew

I guess I'll have to find
A new, a-a new kind
A guy who digs my shiny stockings, too

(bridge)

I've got stockings
I wanna show
To make you know
That I'm just the girl for you

My hosiery is great
And I have them on straight
I'll make you a choice mate
Yes, indeed, you'll love me boy

With these new stockings how
Can I lose now
When you see them
You'll go mad

I'll turn you around fast
And we'll make our love last
Forever with these shiny stockings of mine

The shiny, shiny!
Wait till you see them
You won't believe them!
They will really gas you
You can't let 'em pass you

Without staring at these shiny stockings now
You will dig my shiny stockings boy and how

Shiny Stockings! (last line with scat tones, but words are 'shiny stockings')
