The Lyrics

A homage to the younger generation of ballet dancers.
Ballet... Huh... Yeah!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Uhuh... uhuh...!

Ballet... Huh... Yeah!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Say it again y'all
Ballet... Huh... Look out!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!

Listen to the teacher - AAH!
Ballet I despise
'Cause it means graduation of innocent lives
Ballet means tears in thousands of mothers' eyes
When their ballet dancers go out to ballet class and lose their weight

She said:
Ballet... Huh... Good God y'all!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Say it again
(Ballet... Huh!) Lord, Lord, Lord...
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to the teacher:

(Ballet) It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
(Ballet) Friend only to the ballerina
Ballet is the tool of all girlhood and boyhood
The thought of ballet calms their minds
Ballet has caused relaxation within the younger generations
Induction then graduation
Who wants to dance?

AAH! Ballet... Huh... Good God y'all!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Say it, say it, say it!
Ballet... Huh...! (Uh Huh... Yeah... Huh!)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to the teacher:

(Ballet) It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
(Ballet) Got one friend, that's the ballerina
Ballet has started many young dreams

Makes them happy, sweet and romantic
Life is but too surely precious, to spend becoming ballet dancers each day
Ballet can give life, it should only move it forward!

AAH! Ballet... Huh... Good God y'all!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Say it again
Ballet... Huh... Lord, Lord, Lord...
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to the teacher:

(Ballet) It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
(Ballet) Friend only to the ballerina
Peace, love and understanding ask the teacher,
Is there a place for these today?
They say we must dance to keep our ballet slippers,
but Lord knows there's got to be a better way

Ballet... Huh... Good God y'all!
What is it good for?
You ask them!
Say it, say it, say it, say it!
Ballet... Good God now... Huh!
What is it good for?
Stand up and shout! (Nothing!)
