I’ll play along (after Da Ponte)

You wanna dance,
you little count?
You wanna dance?

If you really wanna dance
then I’ll dig out the banjo.
Why not? I’ll play along with you.

If you wanna learn how
I’ll even show you the moves:
I could teach you a thing or two.

I will,
I will –
I promise!

But gently now…
I’ll keep my thoughts to myself,
the better to expose your little secrets.

The art of concealing,
the trick to grafting;
pricking here,

and quipping there.
So help me,
I’ll destroy your every plan.

So if you wanna dance,
you little count,
if you really wanna dance

well then sure, I’ll play along with you.
Of course
I’ll play along.
