From the Show:             The Cat And The Fiddle  1931 (S)

Deux par deux,
Deux par deux,
Voila` le vrai bonheur.

Qu'il est doux,
Qu'il est doux, l'amour,
Tour `a tour,
A tambour,
Two by two,
Two by two,
So goes the love parade,
Then why not me with you?
Why should we be afraid?

I would rather watch the other fellow
Strolling down lover's lane.
Watch him getting soft and mellow
With love life on the brain.

But how nice, cool as ice,
With a sweet bonbon,
Just to dawdle and wisely smile
While we look on.


I watch the love parade gaily going by,
Naughty man and willing maid,
Mischief in her eye.

I see him squeeze her arm,
Press her little knee,
Buzzing 'round each rare,
Fair charm, like a busy bee.

But when the march is ended and they part,
When fears and tears are blended in each heart,
I'm very glad I stayed sitting high and dry,
Looking on the love parade gaily going by.

Repeat Refrain
