Dancer

This song is by Babe Ruth and appears on the album Babe Ruth (1975).

Mambo, the mood of Edmundo
The Samba, it ain't no big deal
Broadway, my hat 'n' cane forte
Relies on the speed of your heel

But it's a cruel, mean old world
Of the true Moulin Rouge pearls
When somebody's hustlin' you
Right off of the stage
You'd never be so dumb as to say
I wouldn't say

Ginger, to imitate Ginger, now
Is my sole ambition to date
Bolero, with Raft I could share
But with Blair I could never have faced

But it's a cruel, mean old world
And a true Moulin Rouge pearl
When somebody's hustlin' you
Right off of the stage
You'd never be so dumb as to say
I wouldn't say

Dancer, I'm an old fashioned dancer
And I'll be checkin' you out in the wings
Lady, my poor little lady now
Tryin' so hard to be slim

But it's a cruel, mean old world
And a true Moulin Rouge pearl
When somebody's hustlin' you
Right off of the stage
You'd never be so dumb as to say
I wouldn't say
