Continental Polka lyrics

Continental Polka – lyrics by Ralph Blane, music by Johnny Green, sung and danced by Lucille Ball (dubbed by Virginia Rees) and chorus, performed in Easy to WedWhen we do the Continental Polka,
Just enough of every ruffle catches your eye.
And when we do the Continental Polka,
Every heart of every garter snatches your eye.
As we hop along each cop along the main street
Pleased to think you take a gander at the show
Though they cheer us on they fear us on the main street.
Cause they don’t know just how far we’re gonna go

Come and do the Continental Polka,
You will see the smartest people learning the field
And if you try the Continental Polka,
You will jump on your little old toe and heel
Roll like a little old Ferris wheel
Fast like a little old circus seal
Books like a little old pair of steel
There’s nothing that can make you shake a fan
Like the Continental Polka can.

Come and do the Continental Polka,
You will meet the most elite
From here to Bombay
And if you try the Continental Polka,
You will shout with a little old “yip-i-ay”
Kick all your little old cares away
Dance till the little old break of day
Folks like a little old pair of spades
There is nothing that can make you shake a fan
Like the incidental polka, the sentimental polka,
The Continental Polka can.
