House shoes are great if you’re not going anywhere
and I guess if you have a quick morning errand they’re okay to wear
but I wouldn’t suggest wearing them all day
they’re not gonna support you as you make your way
through work competition escape and pursuits
house shoes won’t do you need running shoes or work boots
house shoes won’t help you win the race
racing in house shoes will destroy your pace
house shoes won’t protect you at construction sites
they’re sure to lose all accidental fights
work boots are winners sure to succeed
giving your feet the armor they’re sure to need
if you’re going somewhere leave your house shoes by your bed
and let your feet be ready for what lies ahead
