This is a song about a man, a man who loved dance but he was more then that. A man who entertained for tips, traveled around the country with his dog doing minstral shows. A dog he loved so well even after 20 years without him. A man who could jump and click his heels even in a jail cell. Ya all should know who I am talking about. Mr Bojangles. A song that is singing in a talking way but oh so powerful of a voice. Sung by Sammy Davis Jr.
