Testo della canzone Down To The Folies Bergere 24 Apr 1911 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
Words and music by Vincent Bryan, Irving Berlin and Ted Snyder .]

[1st verse:]
Why do they rave about beautiful France
Where the wine flows and the maidens entrance
Why go to Berlin, Vienna or Rome
We can enjoy all their joys here at home
In old New York up at Long Acre Square
Turn ‘round the corner, you’ll find yourself there
Millions of miles from all trouble and care
Two doors from Heaven the Folies Bergere

Down, down, down, down, down to the Folies Bergere
Order a Taxi, a cab or a car
Go where the girlies sing oo la, la
Girls, boys, joys, noise, laughter and music all there
Ask me where? Where? Where?
Down to the Folies Bergere

[2nd verse:]
Why do they sing of the Rathskeller’s joys
Who go to places just meant for the boys
We’ll get the girls and we’ll bring them along
Down to the folies, they’ll see nothing wrong
Bring down your sweetheart and give her a seat
If your wife’s there get a gallery seat
Then if your wife and your sweetheart should meet
Thirty-two exits lead out to the street
