The Lyrics

A tribute to Rudolph Valentino, who was an Italian actor, sex symbol, and early pop icon. Known as the "Latin Lover", he was one of the most popular Hollywood stars of the 1920's silent movie era. Prior to breaking into films, Valentino was quite successful as a dancer.
Dance, Valentino, Dance
Destined to own the dark, a star upon the silver screen
Dance, Valentino, Dance
You have the magic spark, charisma that is rarely seen

Act, Valentino, act
Display your handsome face and make the ladie's hearts grow weak
Ride with your hair combed back,
Show smooth romantic ways, in this, your first big film, "The Sheik"

Land big parts...
..and capture great success
Appear in "Blood and Sand"
A bullfighter, no less'll dance..
On, Valentino, on
Amid some troubled loves.. and money fights with studios
But soon your dream is gone..
You'll die at thirty-one when surgery is done,
And fame has just begun..
Oh, Valentino, dance

Be proud, dance..
On, Valentino, on
Deal with the troubled loves...and money fights with studios,
But soon the dream is gone
You'll die at thirty-one when surgery is done
And fame has just begun,
Oh, Valentino, dance..

Sir, this moves very well, and the use of Valentino is delightful ! My Grandmother thanks you from Heaven above! Yes, I agree that well-groomed men (not the sandy type) are a turn-on!
