Dance of Life


The merry kicks in the tummy we beat.
Out we come with flaying arms and feet!
Every tune lures us to the dance floor,
And we dance to the melody as we grow...

But now that we are older and wiser
Life has become one big rush...
The path we take has become a blur
In the rush to be there first!

Oh do take it gentle, take it slow
And smell the roses as you go..
Take it merry and fill with joy
The little things may you enjoy

Dance to the tune of life...
Sway to the merry beats
Dance it steady, Dance it slow...
Listen to the melody as you go

Watch the way you dance your dance,
Make it last, make it count
For the music wont last forever
