[Lulu]
No longer does the lithesome miss,
Cavort in catchy waltz,
The two-step and the rag-time bliss,
She found alas was false.
The schottische and the polka swing,
She’s laid them all a way.
Aesthetic dancing is the think that holds the “floor” today
Ah!

[Refrain]
Ev’ry little movement has a meaning all its own,
Ev’ry tho’t and feeling by some posture can be shown,
And ev’ry love tho’t
That comes a stealing
O’er your being must be revealing,
All its sweetness in some appealing
Little gesture all all its own.

[Leonard]
It makes no diff’rence fat or slim,
You must get in the game,
While some one plays a Turkish hymn,
Just let your soul inflame.
Your arms and legs grow eloquent,
And inner tho’ts sublime,
Express themselves with temp’rament while you are keeping time.
Ah!

[Refrain]
