Posin'!
Oh, posin'!

Dee-dee, fall-e-oh!
There's a dance you ought to do,
Let me introduce to you,
Posin'!
Everybody pose!

Get a partner, then begin,
Hold whatever pose you're in,
Posin'!
Everybody pose!

It's a dance that you can dance with your girl or wife;
Find a pose, then stop; position's everything in life!
You'll find there's no telling when
Dance will stop and start again,
Posin'!
Everybody pose!

Frozen, posin', on-j'mosin'!
Lozin', tosin', ten cents-a-dozin',
Whatta ya mean? Whatta-ya mean I'm speedin'?
I'm just gettin' ready to cut out!
Exactly bop-de-bop-de-body-doh!
Dance will start, stop again,
I'm liable to cut out, and start again!

Now you see, those cats are posin'!

[Scatting]

Yeah! Now you see, I'm posin'!
