Notes

Other versions:

Charlie Chaplin went to France
To teach the ladies how to dance!
First they did the rumba
Then they did the kicks
Then they did the samba
And then they did the splits!

***

Charlie Chaplin went to France
To teach the ladies how to dance.
First the heel, then the toe,
Then the splits, and around you go!
Salute to the Captain,
Bow to the Queen,
And turn your back on the Nazi submarine!
