  • I like to dance and tap my feet

    But they won't keep in rhythm--

    You see I washed them both today

    And I can't do nothin' with 'em.

    Ho hum, the tune is dumb

    The words don't mean a thing--

    Isn't this a silly song

    For any one to sing?

    --A "song"(?) quoted on p.27 in Nevil Shute's Landfall with no credits offered. (Ballentine Books 1972)

    See Dad dancing!
