No. 8 - Song - Rufus with Chorus of Maidens and College Tourists

MIDI File

Rufus: The fatal step, the fatal step,
So full of charm beyond comparing;
You take a leap quite in the dark,
And stand amazed at your own daring.
Some step too high, some step too low,
Some glide, some slide, and in they go,
While some ne'er take the step together,
And find too late they're in a tether,
Tra, la, la!
But oh! the step has, it is known,
A fascination of its own,
Yes, yes, the step has, it is known,
A fascination all its own.
Chorus: Yes, a fascination, oh! a fascination, Ah!
Yes, a fascination, oh! a fascination, Ah!
Yes, a fascination, oh! a fascination, Ah!
Yes, a fascination, oh! a fascination, Ah!
   
Rufus: The fatal step, the fatal step,
With rapture filled, with bliss inflated;
You wake to find your rapture marred,
And wish your mar-in-law cremated.
Some step too high, some step too low,
Some glide, some slide, and in they go,
While some ne'er take the step together,
And find too late they're in a tether,
Tra, la, la!
But oh! the step has, it is known,
A fascination of its own,
Yes, yes, the step has, it is known,
A fascination all its own.
Chorus: Yes, a fascination, oh! a fascination, Ah!
Yes, a fascination, oh! a fascination, Ah!
Yes, a fascination, oh! a fascination, Ah!
Yes, a fascination, oh! a fascination, Ah!
