From the Show:             Pins and Needles  1922 (M)

All the town is falling
For the lastest dancing craze.
It has made a hit;
Yes, ev'rybody sings its praise.*
Though it's just a simple walk
That's causing all the talk;
Once you try it-you'll find
A riot-designed
To leave dull care behind.


The Piccadilly Walk-
The Pic- Pic- Piccadilly Walk-
It's all the talk.
It's just a simple step,
Yet you will find it full of pep.
You walk up to some winsome little maidie,
Then remember, "Faint heart never won
Fair lady."
Intoduce yourself;
Just put convention on the shelf.
Have no alarm;
Just take her by the arm
And walk along
Amid the throng;
Say you're fancy-free
But very lonely;
Ask her if she'll be
Your one and only.
Once you've got the girl,
You've got the Piccadilly Walk.

*Alternate version of verse, lines 3-4:
It has made a hit; the town is all ablaze.
