I first saw Can-Can on Broadway with the original cast, including Gwen Verdon and Lilo (whew!). Saw a revival recently in which we were asked to make up our own lyrics. Here are mine.


 

CAN-CAN LYRICS
 
If a flip co-median can,
If a hip o-lympian can,
If Bardot and Monroe and Diane can,
Baby, you can can-can too.
 
If a crazy Taliban can,
If a lazy, paunchy man can,
If a tired soccer mom in a van can,
Baby, you can can-can too.
 
If a blue-nosed Puritan can,
If a blue-hosed Dodger fan can,
If a proud samurai from Japan can,
Baby, you can can-can too.

Alan Cook, Mystery and walking writer
