The Lyrics

Stanley Kubrick used classical music to great effect in 2001: A Space Odyssey 2001 Space Odyssey - Blue Danube.
1, 2, 3...1, 2, 3...1, 2, 3...
I danced so bad, I’m not a rhythmic guy
All the women passed me by
Arthur Murray never replied
Pre Blue Danube

Tuner flipping after nine
Saw a film on channel five
Kubrick movie, a fortunate find
Heard Blue Danube

This music lit my flame
Danced untamed
To Blue Danube
Where I waltzed divine
Knew the floor was mine
Through Blue Danube

All the perfect notes
Sent my heels afloat
Desire, Herr Strauss gave me
So delighted was I
My feet did fly
Was hoofin’ with ease

Never dreamed my dance would transcend
Hope, I thought, had come to an end
Now the babes say “Dance with me friend
To Blue Danube.”

Don’t do cha cha, don’t do tap
No flamenco, chafes my aft
Disco, hustle, or seventies’ crap
Just Blue Danube.

I love to waltz all day
Strings replay
Stan’s Blue Danube
Where the ships’ll fly
To the music’s time
Of Blue Danube

It’s not idle boast
That from coast to coast
My waltz is best you’ll see
That melodious guide
Yields sweetest tide
Make happy my feet

When was younger guy
I’d deride
Those classic tunes
Seemed a waste of time
When waltz now plays
Legs’ll shake malaise
And stars will align

Now I’m happy I viewed
That night on tube
My Blue Danube

Cute'n'clever match up - somebody oughtta say so. A great tune about a great tune. The 'Big O's' is still the one, though Linda's is good. And Kubrick's match-up of space and Strauss is one of the most inspired cinema sequences ever devised. Glad you found your feet, How can you go wrong with these two as your partners?

Glad you enjoyed it. I've always been fond of Linda's version. Of course, I've always been fond of Linda...
To me, I think it was a stroke of genius for Kubrick to marry the film to classical music. When thinking about the movie, I can't help but hear its soundtrack.
