Lyrics

Hey hey hey
Your my ballerina
is your name misha alexandra or katrina
With your white tights and shoes
and your lacey pinks and blues
you know every girl that sees you wants to be you
and did you on that nite in 1892
look up and see a special star shining there for you?
now lift your chin and raise your pretty arms
and point your toes and smile ballerina

hey hey hey
your my ballerina
your so....popular.....everywhere
you're a picture on a wall
painted by dega
but no one knows your name ballerina
and did you on that gay parisian night in june
look up and see the special star shining there for you?
now lift your chin and raise thse pretty arms
and point your toes and smile ballerina

hey hey hey
my ballerina
are you still beautiful
like i see you?
all beauty has its day
and mortals fade away
but youll always be the same ballerina
(first refrain repeated)
