One Minute Tango

from 25th Album by Monk Turner



They had a one minute tango
They didn't rehearse
It wasn't very graceful
It was rather terse

He was a little clumsy
She was a little drunk

They couldn't do it
They didn't last long
They stunk

It was a one minute tango
They could not find the beat
It wasn't so graceful
And he had two left feet

He was a terrible dancer
And her heart sank

They couldn't do it
They didn't last long
They stunk
