No. 10 - Song - Tanaka and Geisha - "The Western Dance"

MIDI File

Tanaka: Would you like to pick up
A genuine Western dance,
And learn how to kick up
Your feet as they do in France?
Then I'll show you one done
In Paris and London.
Geisha: Oh, do, if you please,
We'll learn it with ease,
If only we get the chance!
We'll learn it with ease,
If we only get the chance!
Tanaka: First of all you point your toe,
Geisha: Point your toe with agility, so,
Tanaka: Then you skip, one-two, one-two,
Geisha: That seems awfully hard to do!
Tanaka: Then you go three-four, five-six,
Geisha: Four, five, six and a couple of kicks!
Tanaka: And then you twiddle your toe again,
And finish it off with eight, nine, ten!
Geisha: First of all you point your toe,
Point your toe with agility, so,
Then you skip, one-two, one-two,
That seems awfully hard to do!
Then you go three-four, five-six,
Four, five, six and a couple of kicks!
And then you twiddle your toe again,
And finish it off with eight, nine, ten!
   
Tanaka: The lesson is ended,
You've nothing much left to learn;
As pupils you're splendid,
You beat me at ev'ry turn;
Once more we'll go thro' it,
And then you can do it!
Geisha: This wonderful dance,
Will give us a chance,
To add to the fees we earn!
Will give us a chance,
To increase the fees we earn!
Tanaka: First of all you point your toe,
Geisha: Point your toe with agility, so,
Tanaka: Then you skip, one-two, one-two,
Geisha: That seems awfully hard to do!
Tanaka: Then you go three-four, five-six,
Geisha: Four, five, six and a couple of kicks!
Tanaka: And then you twiddle your toe again,
And finish it off with eight, nine, ten!
Geisha: First of all you point your toe,
Point your toe with agility, so,
Then you skip, one-two, one-two,
That seems awfully hard to do!
Then you go three-four, five-six,
Four, five, six and a couple of kicks!
And then you twiddle your toe again,
And finish it off with eight, nine, ten!
