Lyrics – Take Back Your Shoes

Take Back Your Shoes

Words and music © 1995 Kate MacColl

Take back your high heels, spike heels, breaking my back to make my legs look better
Make me run just a little slower than you…..take back your
High heels, spike heels, breaking my back to make my legs look better
I want to feel the Earth under my feet – I’ll keep my feet bare, feel the Earth under my feet

Take back your army boots, marching boots, left-right-left-hut! boots, killing boots
I don’t think if I shoot a man that there will be peace on Earth…..take back your
Army boots, marching boots, left-right-left-hut! boots, killing boots
I want to feel the Earth under my feet – I’ll keep my feet bare, feel the Earth under my feet

Why can’t you see the lives of your grandchild’s babies
Why do you only want to know how much you’re worth today
Killing in the name of peace, or for the sake of human rights,
Keeping women down so they don’t get in your way…..take back your

High heels, take back your army boots, take back your
Businessman’s Italian shoes
I want to feel the Earth under my feet – I’ll keep my feet bare, feel the Earth under my feet
