From the Show: A Dangerous Maid 1921 (S)
Dancing shoes make you treasure ev'ry measure
Of a raggy strain;
Dancing shoes bring a gladness and a madness
That go to your brain.
They will make you frolic,
Lose the diabolic,
Weary melancholic blues.
If the world's "agin" you,
Show there's something in you.
Try a pair of dancing shoes
You'll start to sway in a gay sort of way;
In a trance, you'll dance
And lose the doggone blues.
Oh boy! Then joy fills the air.
Not a care, anywhere,
For there's magic in a pair of dancing shoes.
