lyrics

Long time ago
I had a dream
When I was a boy

Wanted to dance

Whirling through life

Stomping in joy

But as years went by
I grew rather shy
Entangled in worries

I forgot rhythm
N' learnt that life also

Could show a shade of blue

So when that day

You came dazzling by
And I muttered…"Hi"

My feet froze still
I'd lost the beat

To take you and fly

When I see you dancing

Those dances I owe you
When I see you dancing

Those dances I owe you

I can't but sigh
...

Dance, dance, dance,

Dance your pains all right out!
Stand, jump, stomp,

Your way through the night

Dance, fly!
Non stop!

Dance, dance, dance,

Dance your pains all right out!
Stand, jump, stomp,

Your way through the night

Grab life,

And ball it right into daylight


So now I sigh

Remembering the night

You passed me by

Where is the boy

That used to dance
That used to fly?

While there's still music

Is it too late
To find the chance?

When I see you dancing

Those dances I owe you…


If I can dance

And regain the joy
I just may get by
