Stilpert Jean

Lyrics in N.E. Scottish doric composed by John Henderson on the 21st of June, 2012,
to Allan Roberts and Doris Fisher's 1945 song, '
Tampico' as played here by Jim Bottorff.

Stilpert Jean, dince-ha' queen, hearken to this cha-cha teen;
Tap ilk fit, faar you sit, lat your fingers flit a bit;
Tak the flair, deil may care, lattin' flee your nait-kaim'd hair;
Ah! Ah! Ah! your cha-cha'll mak fowks stan' an stare.
Nae yin that ivver I've seen, can cha-cha like you can Jean;
Yer clivver, stutterin' pins, wull fesh cheers fur you leen .... Yea!
Shaw a' hoo, noo, richt noo, the braw cha-cha you can do;
Syne you'll fin, at the rin, a' wull tak-aff you.
