Lyrics to Do The Strand (Live 1982)


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 and that's why we say
Do the strand
Do it on the tables Quaglino's place or Mabel's
Slow and gentle sentimental
All styles served here
Louis Seize he prefer Laissez faire 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 oases Eskimos and Geordies
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
Rhododendron is a nice flower
Evergreen it last forever
But it can't beat strand power
The Sphynx and Mona Lisa
Lolita and Guernica
Did the strand
