As he took to the stage
And began to engage
With the frosty audience below,
They started to cheer
But it soon became clear
There was something they just didn’t know
He was dressed in a frock
they were in for a shock
the lights made him glitter and glow.
His face made up so well
They just couldn’t tell
that this was a totally new kind of show.
And he danced and he sang
The show went with a bang
and as the applause started to grow,
he’d finally regale
and reveal he was male,
by speaking in a voice that was low.
The name, Danny La Rue,
Is forgotten, it’s true
For it was all such a long time ago.
At the time he was best
For excitement and zest
A drag act without equal, a Pro.
