Song title: High heeled sneakers

(Higgenbotham) by Johnny River, Muddy Waters (Pye 7N 25238), 1964 - Imperial LP-9274

High heeled sneakers

Put on your red dress baby,
'Cause we're going out to night.
Put on your red dress baby,
'Cause we're going out to night.
You better wear some boxing gloves
In case a fool might wanna fight.[1]

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.
I'm pretty sure now baby
'Cause you know, you're gonna knock 'em dead.

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.
Well I'm pretty sure now darling
'Cause you know you gonna knock 'em dead.

Notes: Recorded by Johnny Rivers on "Here We A Go Go Again", but charted by Tommy Tucker and Jerry Lee Lewis in 1964, Stevie Wonder in 1965, the Ramsey Lewis Trio in 1966, Jose Feliciano in 1968. Later also by Rolling Stones and other.
[1] Have a look at Take'em as they come. It may be a coincidence, but….
