drifting on a melody

  The music got into his soul
As he slid across the dance floor
and the DJ  he did implore
For a chance to do that soulful stroll once more

Then  he drifted on a soulful melody
To a place above the clouds
Like a rhythmic traveler in time
To a musical refrain so fine 
He lingered there awhile
Floating above cloud nine

To a syncopated beat  he quickly descended
As he plunged into the depths of the sea
To a beautiful watery world
in an oyster shell, he found a pearl
With a melody all  of its own
Then he ascended with this soulful tune
And landed  on the dance floor soon
Round and round he twirled his girl
 Before he presented her with the pearl
