Come Dance With Me
Hey there, why the long face
Why so sad?
Recession and unemployment?
Foreclosure and Market down?
Afghanistan and Iraq?
Annoying loud Tea Baggers shouting anger?
BP lubricating the gentle waves of the Gulf?
Of course, it looks and sounds bad, but
you just have to stop being sad.
It is bad for your health to fret so.
So come dance with me
and I will make you smile.
First dress the part of happy faces.
Lavender for a bit of devilish spice,
purple to feel royal.
Comfortable purple shoes so you can
start feeling joy from the bottom of your feet.
The music is all around you
birds, cars wind and tooting trains.
The first step I will teach you
is the Roll with It Cheer Up Waltz.
Two steps forward and never step back
then twist to the left.
raise your right hand
And shout ”Saluda!”
The dance is so silly
it makes you laugh.
It is hard to laugh with a sad face
so we have cheered you up
at Alex's Smiling Dance Studio.
Then time to rest from the
Roll With It, Cheer Up Waltz.
Those who make us angry
would have done us in long ago
if we had not learned this dance
that makes us laugh.
