That Girl in the Serpentine Dance.
Copyright, 1892, by Will Rossiter.
Words and Music by W. B. Williams.

The latest sensation we've got in the town,
She lives next to us on the street,
Reporters of dailies are writing her up,
To see her it is a great treat;
She's not a prize-fighter from Australia's shore,
Or ballet-girl over from France,
With her new-fangled style she's knocked them all cold,
Has this girl in the serpentine dance.

She's graceful and neat, such curves she makes,
A man, if he's sober, would think he had snakes;
She's startled the town, they seem in a trance,
With her latest sensation, the serpentine dance.

In this great creation she dresses like Eve;
Her clothes they are usually white;
The first thing they do is to turn out the gas;
Of course that makes her 'out of sight.'
Then up starts the music, you see a dark form,
While lime lights quite prettily rise,
Then she lifts up her dress, that's simply Immense,
That you'll hardly believe your own eyes.-Chorus.

It's a great inspiration, it thrills to the core,
The bald-headed men have a treat;
They seem to be dreaming as if in a daze­You'll see them rise up from their seat.
And when it's all over they're weak from the strain
Of watching that beautiful sight,
And as they're homeward bound, you'll hear them remark,
Now we'll have to come here every night.- Chorus.
