From the Show: For Goodness Sake 1922 (M)
Over in Paris they show
A dance ev'ryone ought to know-
Invented by a certain chef
When he needed the dough.
Known as the French Pastry King,
He really started the thing;
It's simply taking the steps in baking.
See! See! Here's the recipe:
Start it with a little bit of ginger;
Throw in a little spice.
I'm sure a dash of this will never injure;
A dash of that will make it very nice.
Next thing is to mix it all together;
Sweeten with tender talk.
And then you'll be dancing to the recipe
For the French Pastry Walk.
