Doris Day - Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps

Doris Day is a guilty pleasure, and this is perhaps her greatest song ever.  And it's a simply smashing rumba, which if you've never learned it I'm sure that your Captain can help you out.  Certainly all of my Gentlemen Readers should be able to do a credible rumba because their Lady Friends will simply swoon when they do.  Not sure what more of a recommendation you need.



Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps (Cuban songwriter Osvaldo Farrés, translated from the Spanish by Joe Davis)
You won't admit you love me
And so how am I ever to know?
You always tell me
Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps

A million times I've asked you,
And then I ask you over again
You only answer
Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps

If you can't make your mind up
We'll never get started
And I don't wanna wind up
Being parted, broken-hearted

So if you really love me
Say yes, but if you don't dear, confess
And please don't tell me
Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps

If you can't make your mind up
We'll never get started
And I don't wanna wind up
Being parted, broken-hearted

So if you really love me
Say yes, but if you don't dear, confess
And please don't tell me
Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps
Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps
And to answer my overly-curious readers, yes I can do a quite credible rumba.  Especially to this.  And doubly especially with the lovely and light-on-her-feet Mrs. Borepatch.

Do you rumba? Take a rumba from one to ten.

Do you Rumba?
No, but I'll walk around while you rumba. Hold this. ~Groucho Marx

I tried learning to dance once. Made it about one song before my instructor (a friend of my ex wife's, before we split), a lady who was supposedly very long on patience, gave up on me. Apparently I suffer from WhiteMan Disease (tm): its the number one killer of rhythm in America.

RabidAlien, it is a skill and it can be learned (at least to a basic level). Think of it as learning to use a lathe or milling machine.

abnormalist, it's an interesting (and very non Doris Day) take on the song.
