The Little Shoemaker [Le Petit Cordonnier]
In the shoemaker's shop This refrain would never stop As he tapped away Working all the day. At his bench there was he Just as busy as a bee Little time to lose With the boots and shoes. But his heart went pop Inside the little shop When a lovely girl Set him all a whirl. She had come to choose Some pretty dancing shoes And he heard her say In her charming way, "Shoes to set my feet a-dancing, dancing, Dancing, dancing all the day. Shoes to set my feet a-dancing, dancing, Dancing all my cares away." Then he tapped and he stitched For his fingers were bewitched And he sewed a dream Into every seam. Making shoes, oh so neat Just like magic on her feet And he hoped she'd know That he loved her so. But she danced, danced, danced As tho' she were entranced Like a spinning top All around the shop. On her dainty feet She whirled into the street And he heard her say As she danced away, "Shoes to set my feet a-dancing, dancing, Dancing, dancing all the day. "Shoes to set my feet a-dancing, dancing, Dancing all my cares away."
