Ten Cents a Dance - Ella Fitzgerald

I work at the palace ballroom

 

But gee that palace is cheap

 

When I get back to my chillly hallroom

Im much too tired to sleep

 

Im one of those lady teachers

 

A beautiful hostess you know;

 

One that the palace features

 

At exactly a dime a throw

 

Ten cents a dance

 

Thats what they pay me

 

Gosh how they weigh me down

 

Ten cents a dance pansies and rough guys

 

Tough guys who tear my gown

 

Seven to midnight I hear drums

 

Loudly the saxophone blows

 

Trumpets are tearing my ear-drums

 

Customers crush my toes

 

Sometimes I think Ive found my hero

 

But its a queer romance;

 

All that you need is a ticket

 

Come on big boy ten cents a dance

 

Fighters and sailers and bow-legged tailors

Can pay for their tickets & rent me

 

Butchers and barbers and rats from the harbour

Are sweethearts my good luck has sent me

Thought Ive a chorus of elderly bows

 

Stockings are porous with holes at the toes

 

Im here till closing time

 

Dance and be merry its only a dime

 

Sometimes I think

 

Ive found my hero

 

But its a queer romance;

 

All that you need is a ticket

 

Come on come on big boy

 

Ten cents a dance
