Lyrics by: Ira Gershwin (b. Israel Gershvin)
Music by: Edward A. Horan
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
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
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.
