  • Lyrics: I feel a waltz coming on I don’t like this feeling I’ll stare at the light bulb up there on the ceiling It’s old and it’s corny It’s phony, it’s false It’s not what I want, a Waltz! I feel a waltz coming on Of all the diseases The waltz, above all, is the one that displeases It churns in my stomach It burns somersaults The thing I can’t stand is a waltz! I can’t let them see it I must try to hide This squirming unnerving sensation Of a schmaltzy waltz deep inside I feel a waltz coming on! In spite of my wishes My soul is unfurling and swirling in swishes I’m three quarters crazy I’m three quarters mad I’m waltzing a waltz, I’m Bad! I can’t let them see it I must try to act like a man I don’t trust this feeling The last time I waltzed I was months in the healing! I feel a waltz coming on! It’s most disconcerting It’s more than my lower lumbago that’s hurting My delicate senses It brutely assaults I cringe when I hear Everybody stand clear The thing that I fear, it’s near, it’s here, it’s a waltz!
