Do The Strand

Album: For Your Pleasure (1973)
  • There's a new sensation
    A fabulous creation
    A danceable solution
    To teenage revolution
    Do the Strand love
    When you feel love
    It's the new way
    That's why we say
    Do the Strand
    Do it on the tables
    Quaglino's place or mabel's
    Slow and gentle

    All styles served here
    Louis seize he prefer
    Laissez-faire Le Strand
    Tired of the tango
    Fed up with fandango
    Dance on moonbeams
    Slide on rainbows
    In furs or blue jeans
    You know what I mean
    Do the Strand

    Had your fill of quadrilles
    The madison and cheap thrills
    Bored with the Beguine
    The samba isn't your scene
    They're playing our tune
    By the pale moon
    We're incognito

    Down the Lido
    And we like the Strand
    Arabs at oasis
    Eskimos and Chinese
    If you feel blue
    Look through who's who
    See La Goulue
    And Nijinsky
    Do the Strandsky
    Weary of the Waltz
    And mashed potato schmaltz

    Is a nice flower
    It lasts forever
    But it can't beat Strand power
    The sphynx and Mona Lisa
    Lolita and Guernica
