Gesticulate Song Lyrics
When you tell a story
Amorous or gory
You can tell it best if you gesticulate
Suppose the mighty Sinbad
Meets a Djinn who's been bad
They can guess the rest if you gesticulate
A tongue is a tongue
And a lung is a lung
In a tale you can shout or sing
Without the gesture? Nothing!
Undulate her body
That can be expressed if you gest...
Can be assessed if you gest...
She'll be undressed if you gesticulate
If I tell you I was walking by the sea
and found a genie in a bottle, that's trite!
Right! For practically everyone has seen a genie someone had to throttle...in a bottle!
Right! But if I say the bottle was soooo teeny
And sooooo was the genie
Until with trembling hand, I pulled the cork
And threw the jug and covered up my eyes
And the smoke began to curl
And the smoke began to swirl
And it curled and it swirled
And it swirled and it curled
As higher it did rise
Till it was sooooo high
And soooo was the genie
Then two great arms reached down
And liftd me up, up, up
Into the sky
And we did fly, the genie and I
We did sail, did sail....
Is this a tale? This is a tale!
Are you impressed? We are impressed!
You see, you see, you seeeeee
For the facile finger
Listeners will linger
They will be impressed if you gest...
Applaud with zest if you gest...
If it's a question of a story, gory, Sinbad, Djinn bad, bottle, smoke, genie, arms, fly, high, sky..
I state, reiterate, gesticulate
With your hands!
