Simon Smith & His Amazing Dancing Bear

simon smith 1

I may go out tomorrow if I can borrow a coat to wear
Oh, I’d step out in style with my sincere smile and my dancing bear
Outrageous, alarming, courageous, charming
Oh, who would think a boy and a bear
Could be well accepted everywhere
It’s just amazing how fair people can be

Seen at the nicest places where well-fed faces all stop to stare
Making the grandest entrance is Simon Smith and his dancing bear
They’ll love us, won’t they?
They feed us, don’t they?
Oh, who would think a boy and a bear
Could be well accepted everywhere
It’s just amazing how fair people can be

Who needs money when you’re funny?
The big attraction everywhere
Will be Simon Smith and his dancing bear
It’s Simon Smith and his amazing dancing bear

 

Summary :

I will accompany my pet bear to a dance if somebody lends me a coat. People will appreciate me for this; they will supply us with food and justice in exchange for our good humour. And, basically, because this grizzly can tango.

 

Translated into Flamenco Spanish:

 

Préstame un abrigo, primo,

Que me voy a marcar unas sevillanas con este osito.

La gente nos quiere, olé,

Es decir, a Simón el Herrero y a su oso bailón.

    Is the man’s name ALAN Price or ADAM Price? Your tag says ADAM but the record sleeve says ALAN.

      You are absolutely right. Unforgiveable typo there. He’s Alan. I must have been confusing him with Adam Faith. Or somebody. Thanks,,,,, Heen
