The legendary Mr. Bojangles helps hawk Clinton's new book.

MACON, Ga. -- Famous song-and-dance man Mr. Bojangles has joined Bill Clinton on his promotional book tour.

Subject of the popular standard song Mr. Bojangles, sung by everyone from here to Sammy Davis, Jr., Mr. Bojangles said he is proud to be helping to sell Mr. Clinton's book.

"I wants to help him because he is a great American, like a good folk song," said Mr. Bojangles, who will dance for you.

The Clinton publicity machine searched far and wide to find Mr. Bojangles. "He was in Arkansas as it turned out," said a Clinton press agent. "He had the same worn out shoes, silver hair a ragged shirt. He was still doing the old soft shoe and jumped at the job."

"So many of my fans gonna like this Clinton book," said Mr. Bojangles, who worked with minstrel shows travelling throughout the south for decades. "I dance now at every chance in the honky tonks for my drinks and tips but most the time I spend behind country bars. You see I drinks a bit."

Clinton's publisher is aglow at the gimmick. "Having Mr. Bojangles along with Bill is going to make sales shoot through the roof."

Mr. Clinton said, "I love Mr. Bojangles and it is so ironic that my book is coming out while he is still grieving for his dog, who up and died."
