Who used to sell ribbons,
And stood up all day on his feet,
Grew very spoony
On Madelaine Mooney,
Who’d rather be dancing than eat.
Each evening she’d drag him,
To some dance hall drag him,
And when the band started to play,
She’d up like a silly,
And grab tired Willie,
Steer him on the floor and she’d say:
“Waltz me around again, Willie,
Round and round and round!
The music is dreamy,
It’s peaches and creamy,
O don’t let my feet touch the ground!
I feel like a ship on an ocean of joy -
I just want to holler out loud, ‘Ship Ahoy!’
Waltz me around again, Willie,
Round and round and round!”
Was a dry goods cashier
At his desk he would sit all the day.
’Till his Doctor advising,
Said “Start exercising,
Or else you will soon fade away.”
One night this poor looney
Met Madelaine Mooney
Fitzgibbons, then shouted with joy,
“She’s a good health-
You’ve found a great trainer!”
Just wait ’till she hollers, my boy
