Dandse, dandse Dukke min!

Hans Christian Andersen 1805 (Odense) – 1875 (Copenhagen)

Dandse, dandse Dukke min!
Nei, hvor Frøkenen er fiin!
Cavaleren ligesaa,
Han har Hat og Handsker paa,
Buxer hvide, Kjole blaa,
Liigtorn paa den store Taa.
Han er fiin, og hun er fiin.
Dandse, dandse Dukke min!
 
Her er gamle Lisemo`er!
Hun er Dukke fra i Fjor;
Haaret nyt, det er af Hør,
Panden vasket er med Smør;
Hun er ganske ung igjen.
Kom Du med, min gamle Ven!
I skal dandse alle Tre.
Det er Penge værd at see.
 
Dandse, dandse Dukke min!
Gjør de rette Dandsetrin!
Foden ud ad, hold Dig rank,
Saa er Du saa sød og slank!
Neie, dreie, snurre rundt,
Det er overmaade sundt!
Det er nydeligt at see.
I er søde alle Tre.
