My youth was spent in the Orient Where they never taught you to waltz.
You'd be surprized when I exercize It was never done to a waltz.
It was done like this, But never to a waltz.
In ancient Siam women like I am
Indoors or in the street,
No woman dances with her feet.
Egyptian, Persian, only one version
No other stands a chance,
Feet are for walking, not for dance.
To an Oriental fiddle
You can see them shake their middle,
The feet don't mean a thing,
Middles are all they swing!
Even an Egyptian mummy wiggles her tummy,
Wiggles it so and so,
That is the only dance I know.
You don't need an Arthur Murray
Just the fringe that's on a surrey,
We'll satisfy your needs,
Dancing between the beads.
Ev'rybody shake your torso,
Sexy, but moreso,
Shake it, Come on, let's go,
Let's do the only the dance I know.
