    We can dance if we want to

    We can leave your friends behind

    ‘Cause your friends don’t dance

    And if they don’t dance

    Well, they’re no friends of mine

    Say, we can go where we want to

    A place where they will never find

    And we can act like we come

    From out of this world

    Leave the real one far behind

    I was a dancer once, back in the day. / But now, not so much I’m sorry to say. / With an enchanting partner I could glide, dip and sway. / Those days are now over; my walker gets in the way. ;>)

    Unfortunately, for some poor souls, it IS other people who determine their happiness. They spend their lives so worried about what people think and most of the time nobody is even looking.

    My one legged country girl…

    She would hit the dance floor when she heard her favorite song

    She would do the two step, it would take her twice as long..
