She Danced So Sweetly

If you’d known your days were numbered Would you have danced a whole lot more Would you have jitterbugged & strewn yourself Across that bopping floor Would you have tapped Way past midnight Line danced everywhere Or watched all your pals From a soft comfy chair Mum you loved to boogie You did it oh so well Swaying, and displaying No worries did you dwell Dancing all around the world On special holidays Dressing up in party clothes Those where the days But now your taps are shelved Well here on earth they are But I know your gliding everywhere From afar, but not too far!

But why do women who love to dance end up marrying men who don't? Aloha!
