A NEW FANGLED TANGO From the Broadway Show "Happy Hunting" (1956) (Matt Dubey / Harold Karr) Ethel Merman - 1956 Lena Horne - 1957 Also recorded by : Dinah Shore; George Cates; Liliane Montevecchi; Ross Mitchell Orch. Everybody's mambo crazy Cha-cha happy, but I'm lazy I don't dig that frantic turpsichord When I trip the light fantastic I don't wanna be gymnastic That's not what a dancing floor is for What I got in mind is a big improvement With a very minimum amount of movement Let the other couples push and shove What I got in mind I think you're gonna love I got a new-fangled tango And there's nothing to it You just sort of stand there And just sort of do it You stand close together There's no wasted motion A new fangled tango An old fashioned motion The floor may be crowded But that doesn't matter It's not necessary to move Don't move, why move It may be crowded But that's all the better It's just like romancing, while dancing Who's dancin' You start off with one step And cling to each other And you know how one step Can lead to another Oh, there's nothing wrong with A waltz or fandango But oh, what can come from A new fangled tango You cling to your partner And sway to the rhythm You can't lose your partner 'Cause you're right there with him You don't have to be worry About fast or slow steps The nice part about it In this dance, you don't need steps You don't have to worry If your dancing won't do It's not what you do do It's more what you don't do You don't need a waltz Or a fancy fandango You just need a man And a new fangled tango Forget the fandango Give up the mambo Do the tango (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen & Mel Priddle - October 2004)
