Dancer
 
Mambo, the mood of Edmundo, the Samba it ain’t no big deal
Broadway, my hat-n-cane forte relies on the speed of your heel
 
But it’s a cruel mean old world
of the true Moulin Rouge pearls
When somebody’s hustliu you right oflofthe stage
You’d never be so dumb as to say, I wouldn’t say
 
Ginger, to imitate Ginger now is my sole ambition to date
Bolero with Raft Iconld share but with Blair Icould never have
faced
 
But it’s a cruel mean old world o/the true Mouliu Rouge Pear
When somebocly’s hust/in you right ofl of the stage
You’d never be so dumb as to say, I wouldn’t say
 
Dancer, I ’rn an old fashioned dancer n’ Illl be
checleing you out in the wings
Lady my poor leading lady now
is trying so hard to be slim
 
But it’s a cruel mean old world
of the true Moulin Rouge Pearls
when sornebody’s hustlin you
right ofl of the stage
Yo!/d never be so dumb as to say, I wouldnt say
