First Night Design | Syncopated Lady

Created with a vintage lady from The Graphics Fairy and overlays from my texture collection.

Dance, Little Lady

‘Tho’ you’re only seventeen,
Far too much of life you’ve seen,
Syncopated child.
Maybe if you only knew
Where your path is leading to
You’d become less wild
But I know it’s vain
Trying to explain
While there’s this insane
Music in your brain

Dance, dance, dance little lady
Youth is pleasing to the rhythm
Beating in your mind
Dance, dance, dance little lady
So obsessed with second best
No rest you’ll ever find
Time and tide and trouble
Never, never wait
Let the cauldron bubble
Justify your fate
Dance, dance, dance little lady
Dance, dance, dance little lady
Leave tomorrow behind.

Time and tide and trouble
Never, never wait
Let the cauldron bubble
Justify your fate
Dance, dance, dance little lady
Dance, dance, dance little lady
Leave tomorrow behind.

—Noël Coward, from This Year of Grace, his musical revue from 1928. And below is the man himself singing the number.
