Notes We used to sing this at Covedale Elementary school in the early 80s. "Buddies" was the name for generic or off-brand tennis shoes (we called tennis shoes sneakers, by the way). I have very recently discovered that in other regions, people sung about "Bobos" instead of buddies. The bobos version is more complete than the buddies version that I remember.
Buddies (Cincinnati)

They make your feet feel fine
They cost a dollar ninety-nine

Bobos variant (unknown)*

Bobos, they make your feet feel fine
Bobos, they cost a nickel and a dime
Bobos, they're made by hobos
So get your bobos at Lobo's today
