No matter how trivial And mindless it can be Itís still so convivial Proportionally - Itís all so frustrating This tap dance is grating Our nerves need sedating Odd, even! Odd, even! Donít think with your ears blocked You wonít catch its cadence Itís like an alarm clock This furious tap-dance. And now it starts sprinting Drops those who canít take it! Odd, even! Odd, even! Keep rhythm or break it! Break! Ba-da-ban, tam-tam - castanets time. Take Your last tap-dance call - till the next time.) Broke!... By a beat that shreds and careers Break! Odd, even! Ache Of the soles that shake chandeliers! Odd!... Even! Whoíd take me down with him With treacherous weaving, In slow motion rhythm Words none could believe in?! Soon heíll leave it fainting - That beat madly grieving But still unrelenting - Odd, even! Odd, even! The veins are all pulsing The spells take their casting Whatís got them convulsing Not vodka, but dancing Guitar, pay your forfeit Suspense brings a shudder Then one beat - two more beats - One hell of a number! Break! Ba-da-ban, tam-tam - castanets time. Take Your last tap-dance call - till the next time.) Broke!... By a beat that shreds and careers Break! Odd, even! Ache Of the soles that shake chandeliers! Odd!... Even! Itís each for himself now! All strength now bereaving - Alone on the shelf now You hear its feet leaving! The "break" call is given Your shoulders start heaving To dreams youíre still cleaving Odd, even! Odd, even! You thought you were grounded, A wreck aged one hundred - For even you, grandad The tapdance works wonders! Though no oneís for stopping Quadrille or Bolero To stave off the coffin Start tapdance tomorrow! Break! Ba-da-ban, tam-tam - castanets time. Take Your last tap-dance call - till the next time.) Broke!... By a beat that shreds and careers Break! Odd, even! Ache Of the soles that shake chandeliers! Odd!... Even!
