Lyrics

In the Naughty Nineties
Ladies were so great;
In the Naughty Nineties,
This how they’d sway,
Waltzing as light as a feather
And bumping their bustles together.

Hands, knees, and boomps-a-daisy,
I like a bustle that bends;
Hands, knees, and boomps-a-daisy,
What is a boomp between friends?
La, la, la, la, la.
Hands, knees, oh don’t be lazy,
Let’s make the party a wow!
Now then, hands, knees, and boomps-a-daisy,
Turn to your partner and bow.

Gentlemen with whiskers,
Twirl the ladies round,
Hoping that each bustle’s
Fastened safe and sound.
Grandma says boomping is shocking,
You might show an inch of your stocking.

Hands, knees, and boomps-a-daisy,
I like a bustle that bends;
Hands, knees, and boomps-a-daisy,
What is a boomp between friends?
Hands, knees, oh don’t be lazy,
Let’s make the party a wow!
Now then, hands, knees, and boomps-a-daisy,
Turn to your partner and bow.
x2

Bow, wow!
