Lyrics YOU SAY
THAT LOVE'S LIKE DANCIN',
WITH RULES YOU MUST OBEY.
YOU CURTSEY
AND HE LEADS YOU
'ROUND THE FLOOR.
WHAT FOR?
YOUR HEART KNOWS
ALL THE STEPS THAT YA NEED!
SO, LISTEN TO IT BEAT
AND LET IT LEAD THE WAY:

OH, WHY NOT JAZZ UP
THE TICKY TOCK
OF THE TWO STEP
WITH A STEP OF YOUR OWN?
IF YOU FEEL A BEAT
DON'T SIMPLY REPEAT
BUT LISTEN
TO WHAT'S DANCY
IN YOUR FANCIFUL FEET.
OH, I GOT NOTHIN'
BUT FUN
AND RAGGEDY RHYTHMS
EVEN WHEN I'M ALONE.
BUT IF THERE'S A SHEIK
WHO GETS ME CARRIED AWAY,
RICH OR POOR,
DON'T BE SURE
HE WOULDN'T SAY:
OH, WHY NOT JAZZ UP
THE TICKY TOCK
OF THE TWO STEP
WITH A STEP OF YOUR OWN?!

MY FATHER LOVED TO TANGO.
MY MOTHER LOVED TO WALTZ.
YA THINK THAT MEANS
THEY NEVER GOT TO DANCE?
NO CHANCE!
THEY TRADED STEPS
UNTIL THEY COULD FLY!
AND ONCE
THEY FOUND THEIR RHYTHM,
THAT'S WHEN I WAS BORN!

SO, WHY NOT WIND UP
THE WINSOME WAG
OF THE ONE STEP
WITH A STEP OF YOUR OWN?
IF YOU FEEL A BEAT,
DON'T TRY TO COMPETE
BUT JIGGLE TO THE WIGGLE
IN YOUR GIGGLIN' FEET!
OH, I GOT NOTHIN'
BUT FUN
AND RAGGEDY RHYTHMS
EVEN WHEN I'M ALONE.
RUDY VALENTINO
KNOWS WHAT I'M ALL ABOUT.
WATCH HIM PLEAD!
YES, INDEED,
HE'S GONNA SHOUT:
OH, WHY NOT WIND UP
THE WINSOME WAG
OF THE ONE STEP
WITH A STEP OF YOUR OWN?!

OH, I JUST LOVE
TO BE CUTTIN'
RAGGEDY RHYTHMS
EVEN WHEN I'M ALONE...
EVEN WHEN I'M ALONE...
THERE HE GOES,
AND ONCE AGAIN
I'M CARRIED AWAY...
I'M NOT COLD
WHEN I'M BOLD.
I'LL BE HIS SHEBA
AND SAY:
OH, WHY NOT JAZZ UP
THE TICKY TOCK
OF THE TWO STEP
WITH A STEP OF YOUR OWN?
SO WHAT
IF HE'S OUT OF MY REACH?
I'LL NEVER STOP
UNTIL I CAN TEACH HIM
HOW TO DANCE ON HIS OWN.
OH,
WHY NOT DANCE ON YOUR OWN?

Lyrics WHAT WILL TOMORROW BRING?
THE PUNDITS QUERY.
WILL IT BE CHEERY?
WILL IT BE SAD?
WILL IT BE BIRDS IN SPRING
OR HARA KIRI?
DONT WORRY DEARIE.
DONT WORRY LAD.
ILL HAVE OUR FUTURE
SUIT YOUR WHIM,
BLUE CHIP PREFERRED.
PUTTING IT IN A SYNONYM,
PERFECT IS THE WORD.
WERE IN THIS THING TOGETHER,
ARENT YOU GLAD?
EACH DAY FROM NOW
WILL BE THE BEST DAY
YOU EVER HAD.

YOURE GONNA LOVE TOMORROW.
YOURE GONNA BE WITH ME.
YOURE GONNA LOVE TOMORROW,
IM GIVING YOU
MY PERSONAL GUARANTEE.
SAY TOODLE-OO TO SORROW.
AND FARE THEE WELL,
ENNUI.
YOURE GONNA LOVE TOMORROW,
AS LONG AS YOUR TOMORROW
IS SPENT WITH ME.

TODAY
WAS PERFECTLY PERFECT,
YOU SAY.
WELL,
DONT GO AWAY.
BECAUSE IF YOU THINK
YOU LIKED TODAY,
YOURE GONNA LOVE TOMORROW,
THEN THINK
OF HOW ITS GONNA BE:
TOMORROW IS WHAT
YOURE GONNA HAVE
A LIFETIME OF WITH ME.!

SALLY DEAR,
NOW THAT WERE
MAN AND WIFE,
I WILL DO WONDERS
TO MAKE YOUR LIFE
SOUL STIRRING
AND FREE OF CARE.
IF WE FIGHT
AND WE MIGHT,
ILL CONCEDE.
FURTHERMORE,
DEAR,
SHOULD YOUR EGO NEED
BOLSTERING,
ILL DO MY SHARE.
BUT THOUGH ILL DO MY UTMOST
TO NEVER SEE YOU FROWN,
AND THOUGH ILL TRY TO CUT MOST
OF OUR EXPENSES DOWN,
IVE SOME TRAITS,
I WARN YOU.
TO WHICH
YOULL HAVE OBJECTIONS.
I, TOO
HAVE A CORNUCOPIA
OF IMPERFECTIONS.

I MAY BURN THE TOAST.
OH, WELL,
I MAY MAKE
A ROTTEN HOST.
DO TELL.
BUT NO MATTER
WHAT GOES WRONG,
LOVE WILL SEE US THROUGH
TILL SOMETHING BETTER
COMES ALONG.
I MAY VEX YOUR FOLKS.
OKAY.
I MAY INTERRUPT YOUR JOKES.
YOU MAY.
BUT IF I COME ON TOO STRONG,
LOVE WILL SEE US THROUGH
TILL SOMETHING BETTER
COMES ALONG.

I MAY PLAY CARDS ALL NIGHT
AND COME HOME AT THREE.
JUST LEAVE A LIGHT ON THE PORCH
FOR ME.
WELL, NOBODY IS PERFECT!
I MAY TRUMP YOUR ACE.
PLEASE DO.
I MAY CLUTTER UP
THE PLACE.
ME, TOO.
BUT THE MINUTE WE EMBRACE
TO LOVES OLD SWEET SONG,
DEAR,
THAT WILL SEE US THROUGH
TILL SOMETHING BETTER
COMES ALONG.

TOMORROW IS
WHAT YOURE GONNA HAVE,
AND MONDAY IS
WHAT YOURE GONNA HAVE,
AND APRIL IS
WHAT YOURE GONNA HAVE,
AND LOVE IS
WHAT YOURE GONNA HAVE
A LIFETIME
WITH ME!
DEAR,
THAT WILL SEE US THROUGH
TILL SOMETHING,
LOVE WILL KEEP US TRUE
TILL SOMETHING,
LOVE WILL HELP US HEW
TO SOMETHING,
LOVE WILL HAVE TO DO
TILL SOMETHING BETTER
COMES ALONG!
