Heavenly Earth

The glitt’ring hall is filling up with dancers spinning bright,
And one especially’s cutting in who’s very cool and light.
Steppin’, movin’, groovin’ through, as smooth as butter sweet,
She’s the one can melt my soul until I’m only heat.

Step down, move in, bump once and stay,
Oh now, oh now, the other way.

Earthy dancin’, earth of mine,
Soul is free and body fine.
Talkin’ happy, stalkin’ light,
Life is good and I’m all right!

Steppin’, movin’, groovin’ in,
As far as we can go,
We freeze and melt and freeze again,
Oh no, oh yes, oh no!

The gleaming old hall is a-filling all up with the dancers of feathery light,
And one is especially coming on in who is doing it, brewing it right.
And steppin’ and movin’ and groovin’ on through to the rhythm of higher and low
She still is the one who can butter me better whenever and ever we go!

Step down, move in, bump once and git,
Oh now, oh now, we’re doin’ it;
Come back, reverse, swing all about
And up again and bump it out.

Step down, move in, bump once and stay,
Oh now, oh now, the other way!

Earthy dancin’, earth of mine,
Soul is free and body fine;
Soul body free, soul body fine,
Soul body fine fine fine fine!

Steppin’, movin’, groovin’ in,
As far as we can go,
We freeze and melt and freeze again,
Oh no, oh yes, oh no!

A flash—–a hall—–that’s all!
