The Lyrics

Happy taps put the soles on the hardwood planks;
steel shanks on the shoes make their pleasing “clanks.”
Won’t slip if you’re vigilant; of that take heed.
You carefully tread and no red you will bleed.
You won’t get hurt tapping
and your shoes will glide
on floor sans mishapping,
and in your dance mastery you’ll take pride.

To get on the right track once you commence tapping,
you’ll prevent accidents and won’t get a smashed knee.
When you’re on the right track, you’ll be a mensch tapping,
you’ll prevent accidents and won’t get a gashed knee.
When you’ve mastered tapping,
you’ll take deserved pride.
This isn’t like running laps,
such as when it might be raining outside.

You put shoes in your pack when you’ve ended tapping.
It’s then you can commence some refreshment lapping.

Rye shots, yeah!
