Dancing Disa-Stars

Prancing King and Dancing Queen by Phil Burns

Prancing King and Dancing Queen by Phil Burns

AnElephantCant skip the light fandango
He can’t do a Samba or Rumba
He knows who his pals are
When he dances the Salsa
Because he looks like a dummy but dumber

Herr Strauss’s compositions are wasted on this guy
He can’t find his left foot with a plan
What makes matters worse
He boogies like a lame horse
Not a winner but a sad also ran

He can’t channel his chassis into a Cha Cha
He does the Charleston like a 90-year old granny
He does the Twist and the Jive
Like he sits on a bee hive
And AnElephantCant Can Can can he

He doesn’t cut a dash on the dance floor
He is as mobile as the average lawn mower
If you catch a glimpse
Of his pathetic attempts
You wish he was pretty enough to be a wall flower

He doubts that Ginger is ever his partner
He is not elegant or cool like Astaire
But he is awfully nice
Offers this good advice
If you can’t find a partner use a wooden chair

Because when he hears his sort of music
Like Elvis in that old time movie
He slides down a pole
For a rumbustious Rock n Roll
Man this mastodon is amazingly groovy

Sometimes he can be really fancy
When he decides to do a little romancing
Close your eyes or you might
See a quite horrible sight
AnElephant’s best moves include belly dancing

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    I would love to see an elephant belly dance to Henry Mancini’s ‘Baby Elephant Walk’. 🙂

    Emmy is smiling
    Just visualizing
    Let the music rip
    Rock on and sway
    Your troubles away
    It works for Emmy
    When she doesn’t trip.

    I totally love this, the best so far, as I love dancing and Ginger and Fred, also Gene Kelly-my dancing hero. Even if you are not good at dancing, you have other brilliant qualities which I will be rubbish at. So don’t worry I will not force a charleston on you, but you can watch and enjoy still!

    Bulldogs can only shuffle,
    or maybe break out in a hustle,
    If the music is right,
    and it’s the dark of the night
    a Bulldog might even kerfuffle.

    I think maybe AnElephant could be AReindeer
    As he’s not that good of a dancer
    He could tell Santa to move over
    And he could be the drover
    Of Donner, Blitzen, Vixen and Prancer

    I can sympathize with the mobility of a lawnmower bit. Elephants must not understand ratings and commercial time disseminating culture…but neither can I. I must have an elephant in my dark family history of coyotes, crazies and dreamers.
    Later…
