MIDI File

Kitty: Mademoiselle Pirouette —
Really her name was Suzette,
Only they chang'd it because she could twirl
Faster than any professional girl.
Chorus: Than any professional girl.
Kitty: She was the star of the ballet,
Round her admirers would rally;
Bankers and barons, too many to tell,
Bowed at the feet of the merry Mam'selle.
Chorus: At the feet of the merry Mam'selle.
Kitty: Oh, Pirouette was the pet of the set,
Where the smartest and richest were found,
For they couldn't say nay
to the wonderful way
She went round and round and round and round,
The wonderful way she went round.
Chorus: Oh, Pirouette was the pet of the set,
Where the smartest and richest were found,
For they couldn't say nay
to the wonderful way
She went round and round and round and round,
The wonderful way she went round.
   
Kitty: Someone came wooing her shortly,
Noble and handsome and courtly,
Others she met with a laugh and a jest —
Somehow he wasn't the same as the rest!
Chorus: He wasn't the same as the rest!
Kitty: Every day he would send her
Letters of eloquence tender;
None of the others could flatter so well,
Winning the love of the merry Mam'selle.
Chorus: The love of the merry Mam'selle.
Kitty: Oh, Pirouette would forget to coquette,
And her heart would leap up with a bound,
And her poor little head
with the words that he said
Would go round and round and round and round,
Her silly young head would go round.
Chorus: Oh, Pirouette would forget to coquette,
And her heart would leap out with a bound,
And her poor little head
with the words that he said
Would go round and round and round and round,
Her silly young head would go round.
   
Kitty: Only the course of his passion
Chang'd with the turn of the fashion.
Soon at the feet of another he knelt,
Leaving the dancer a diamond belt;
Chorus: He left her a diamond belt!
Kitty: Somehow the poor little dancer
Didn't find diamonds answer;
Under their flash, as they rose and they fell,
Sad was the heart of the merry Mam'selle.
Chorus: Was the heart of the merry Mam'selle.
Kitty: Oh, Pirouette, she is yet to be met,
As a dancer adored and renowned;
She has broken her heart,
but she's playing her part
Going round and round and round and round,
For ever she has to go round.
Chorus: Oh, Pirouette, she is yet to be met,
As a dancer adored and renowned;
She has broken her heart,
but she's playing her part
Going round and round and round and round,
For ever she has to go round.
