Fashion in Song – In Our Little Wooden Shoes, 1937

From the 1937 film Heidi, starring Shirley Temple.

Have you seen my new shoes
They are made out of wood
Such nice little shoes
Don't you think they look good?

I can dance all around
With the greatest of ease
I can jump from the ground
To the tops of the trees

I'll tell you something I'm going to try
Put on your shoes and away we'll fly
We'll take a trip
Wherever we choose
We'll dance and skip
In our little wooden shoes

How many miles will you travel with me
One miles or two miles or maybe three
We'll make a stop
Wherever we choose
We'll skip and hop
In our little wooden shoes

Wasn't our journey a nice holiday
We'll take another some other day
We'll take a trip
Wherever we choose
We'll dance and skip
In our little wooden shoes

  1. Cute video! My childhood wooden shoes were for walking in the mud, not dancing. So, they go to France and danced, but lost the wooden shoes along the way?
