Lyrics[]

Back in 1780
When Bulgaria was a lad
There was minuetting in the morning
And the evening they were minuetting mad!

Mister minuetting Mozart
Was the talk of the town
And forgetting to be minuetting
Was letting the other minuetters down

Oh, Womble to your partners
Young Wombles were told
If you Minuetto Allegretto
You will live to be old

Young Womble Bulgaria
Was listening with glee
"If I Minuetto Allegretto
A very old wise Womble I shall be"

Minuetting minutes later
He was Wombling away
Though he used to Womble Allegretto
Now it's Andante Cantabile

Oh, Womble to your partners
Young Wombles were told
If you Minuetto Allegretto
You will live to be old

When the other Wombles were asleep
At the dead of night
He'd become a better minuetter
By practicing in the candlelight

Wimbledon was aware
There was none that could beat
This incredible and amazing
Young Womble with minuetting feet

Oh, Womble to your partners
Young Wombles were told
If you Minuetto Allegretto
You will live to be old

Oh, Womble to your partners
Young Wombles were told
If you Minuetto Allegretto
You will live to be old
