Daisy Duck

When Daisy was a ballerina
all the Donalds hollered
for her tutu to up-end;
they quacked to see her
satin again.

Hmmm... in this case, less is not more.
I'm not getting this at all.  Perhaps someone can explain it to me?

girl duck (daisy) and boy ducks (donalds) in water (disney references)
girl duck tucks her head into the water, bum in the air, showing off her tail feathers (tutu)
the boys quack to see her satin (tail feathers) again

they quacked
to see her
quack again

So true!

semi-related, only insofar as the dance is about the most suggestive
ever seen in film history, Part 7, 5:15, here:

Now, Daisy Duck did not dance quite like that.
But all the Donalds wish that she did.
It was for the sight of down that they did not frown.

The thing is cartoonish, then all coarse (because males are coarse)
until the final two words.

up-end.  Not sure what to think.  Why are there a lot of Donalds and only one Daisy?
