      I can't stop my heart from beating beating 
      Bang bang bang bang (bang bang bang bang) 
      I would like to be like Peter Peter 
      Pan Pan Pan Pan (bang bang bang bang) 

      CHORUS 
      Staying younger by the day 
      My good looks will never fade 
      I hope I can can can can 
      (bang bang bang bang) 

      Napoleon was very brave 
      Incomplete he took to his grave 
      Josephine was such a joke 
      Kept her letter inside his coat 

      V. Van Gogh was so I hear 
      One to send his love an ear 
      Some impression this would make 
      This was to be his big mistake 

      Catherine lost her pretty head 
      She wasn't very good in bed 
      Didn't wear a hat again 
      She got so wet out in the rain 

      I can't stop my heart from beating beating 
      Bang bang bang bang (bang bang bang bang) 
      I would like to be like Peter Peter 
      Pan Pan Pan Pan (bang bang bang bang) 

      CHORUS 

      CHORUS 

      Can can can can (bang bang bang bang)
