VP_007812 Verse 1Give to me, Your kind attention, And you'll see, A new invention, It's a dance, I mean a daisy, Just from France, It sets 'em crazy, Brought to town by "Dancing Mose" Here's the way it goes: Hey! Chorus 1At first you "shiver," While you deliver, A little "Boolaboo" Do ze One-Step, 'way down low, Zen you rise up very slow, You snap your finger, Don't dare to linger, Until the dance is through, Roll your eyes up to the ceiling, "Rag it" with a feeling, And then you're doing the dance called "Frenchy-Koo" "Frenchy-Koo". Verse 2Here's your chance, To learn a new one, It's a dance, And it's a "blue" one, Gay Paree Is where it started, Just before, The Yanks departed, If you want to "Frenchy Koo" This is how you do: Hey! Chorus 2At first you "shiver," While you deliver, A little "Boolaboo" Do ze One-Step, 'way down low, Zen you rise up very slow, You snap your finger, Don't dare to linger, Until the dance is through, To each syncopated "blue" note, Rock just like a "U" boat, And then you're doing the dance called "Frenchy-Koo" "Frenchy-Koo."
