Waltz Me Around Again, Willie"

Lyrics by Will D. COBB, ca. 1906
Music by Ben SHIELDS, ca. 1906

  1. Willie Fitzgibbons, who used to sell ribbons,
    And stood up all day on his feet,

          Grew very spooney on Madeline Mooney,
    Who'd rather be dancing than eat.
    Each evening she'd tag him, to some dance hall drag him,
    And when the band started to play,

    She'd up like a silly and grab tired Willie,
    Steer him on the floor and she'd say,
          "Waltz me around again, Willie, around, around, around;
    The music is dreamy, it's peaches and creamy,

    Oh! don't let my feet touch the ground.
         I feel like a ship on an ocean of joy;

         I just want to holler out loud, "Ship Ahoy!"
    Oh! waltz me around again, Willie, around, around, around."
  2. Willie De Vere was a dry goods cashier,
    At his desk he would sit all the day,
    Till his doctor advised him to start exercising,
    Or else he would soon fade away.
    One night this poor looney met Madeline Mooney,
    Fitzgibbons then shouted with joy,
    "She's a good health regainer, you've got a great trainer,
    Just wait till she hollers, my boy."
          "Waltz me around again, Willie, around, around, around;
    The music is dreamy, it's peaches and creamy,

    Oh! don't let my feet touch the ground.
         I feel like a ship on an ocean of joy;

         I just want to holler out loud, "Ship Ahoy!"
    Oh! waltz me around again, Willie, around, around, around."
