And you'll move as one

Slow, slow, quick, quick

Just think of Fred Astaire

Once you get the feeling

You'll be flying through the air

Now just relax

Glide along

Keep the rhythm of the song

Slow, slow, quick, quick

Slow, slow, quick, quick

Slow, slow, quick, quick

Slow, slow, quick, quick

Slow, slow, quick, quick

Slow, slow

Good grief.

"He spoke in that

elaborately choice French...

...in which our forefathers

not only spoke but thought.

And with those slow

patronizing intonations...

...peculiar to a man of importance

who has grown old in court society...

...he went up to Anna Pavlovna,

I wonder when my Sweet Baboo

is going to ask me to the party.

Anyway, I'll be playing the piano

at the party.

I don't mind the rejection.

It's the smile that bugs me.

If you don't ask me to the party,

I'll just go with someone else.

Good. Go with someone else.

"Anna Pavlovna's

drawing room gradually began to fill.

The people of the highest distinction

in Petersburg were there...

...people very different

in ages and characters. "



Hi, Chuck. This is Peppermint Patty.

You thought any more about

who you're inviting to the party, Chuck?
