Keywords

Shall we dance?

Drop that long face,
Come on, have your fling.
Why keep nursing the blues?
If you want this old world on a string,
Put on your dancing shoes,
Stop wasting time,
Put on your dancing shoes
And wateh your spirits climb.
Shall we dance?
Or keep on moping?
Shall we dance and walk on air?
Shall we give in to despair -
Or shall we dance with never a care?
Life is short.
We're growing older.
Don't you be an 'also ran'.
You'd better dance, little lady,
Dance, little man,
Dance when ever you can.
