Ain't it funny how when people are young, they tend to see this as their parents' music and therefore they don't like it But when they mature to mid their 50s, the age I am now, they discover they like it.
Pretty sure the line means a kid. Kids worked at train stations shining shoes back then, white or black.
@tradersmoe. I think the exact same way.

Its you. It is actually racist to assume that a shoe shine boy must be black.
Is it me or is this song a little...rac i s t ? Boy, you can give me a shine? I guess those were different times... Great tune, though.
I love this song, I have it a movie "Sun Valley Serenade" . Love it!!!!! : )
