From coast to coast,
From Canada to Mexico,
They're doin' a new dance
A tried-and-a-true dance
That will sweep the land
And you'll think it's so grand
You'll have to learn how to do it
So please don't boo woo it
Coz we've got this little dance
That's gonna rise to fame
It's sure to put most any other dance to shame
The turkey-trot, the bunny-hug, the tickley-toe
Will be forgotten when we start to go!
Mr Leader, won't you start the syncopation?
And we'll begin our little demonstration...

Now, first you put your two knees
Close up tight.
Then you sway it to the left
Then you sway it to the right.
Step around the floor kind of nice and light
Then you twist around and twist around
With all of your might.
Stretch your lovin' arms straight out in space
Then you do the eagle rock with style and grace.
Swing your foot way round and bring it back
Now that's what I call ballin' the jack!

That is absolutely Gene Kelly singing. I've watched about everything he
ever did and that is his voice. No reason for him to lip-synch--they didn't
do that so much in those days. And when they did, it was for a major
musical (like Audrey Hepburn's dub in "My Fair Lady"). Gene did all of his
own stuff.

Do you have Gene Kelly and Danny Kaye doing this song together on Danny
Kaye's TV show? I just love this song.
