    Do You Know This Song?

    I love Desi Arnaz. Perfidia-- father takes a wife Casablanca and now Voyager I have this record but it was instrumental without the lyrics. So this question was a little harder than it should have been. Great great subject though.

    Tap dancers, like Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, never stop to put on tap shoes. They dance on street corners, in parks, in hotel rooms, in kitchens, golf courses, living rooms,in carriages, in bars and cafes--they start tap dancing anywhere and everywhere.
