Lyrics

Black socks, they never get dirty
the longer you wear em the blacker they get.

Sometimes I think I should change em but something keeps telling me
Oh no not yet. . not yet.

An Interesting Game With This Song Sent By BusSongs Reader:.

Eeryone is made to stand in a group. Hold hands and sing this song and then we say "Do you love your neighbor?' "It" (who is standing in the middle) says "Yes, I love my neighbor. Especially the ones that (ex. wear blue)'. Everybody that fits this description runs across the middle of the circle to a different spot without getting tagged by "it". Game continues with a new "it" and the singing of "Black Socks".

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

An enjoyable version to sing along to

Black socks, they never get dirty.
The longer you wear 'em, the stiffer they get.

Sometimes, I think of the laundry,
But something inside me says "Don't send them yet".

This is the right version when you are just about to wash your socks

Black socks they never get dirty,
the longer you wear them the stronger they get.

Sometimes I think I should launder them
Something keeps telling me do it right right now!

Yet another version

Black socks, they never get dirty.
The longer you wear them, the blacker they get.
Sometimes I think of the laundry;
But something keeps telling me don't wash them yet not yet, not yet, not yet. .

One more

Black socks they never get dirty
the longer you were them the stronger they get
Sometimes I think I should wash them
but something keeps telling me Not yet not yet not yet.

Sing this version and don't worry about muzzles

They never shut up
The more that you shush them
The louder they get
Sometimes I think about muzzles
But something inside me says
Oh no, not yet.
