We Dance

We dance here, we dance there,
We dance dance everywhere,
And we don’t have a care in the world.
We dance fast, we dance slow,
We dance dance in a flow,
And our fingers in fingers are curled.

All the day into night
And all night into day
We are dancing our whole lives so lightly away,
We don’t think about hours of fading-out flowers
Or of clouds that are overly gray.

We dance there, we dance here,
We dance dance with such cheer
We’ve no time for the crime of a cry,
But we laugh and we sing
As we round-a-round swing
And to tragedy wave we goodbye!

We’re not grim, we’re not dim,
But are lights of our lights
As we twine and we sway in the joy of our day,
And the triumph we share is our feet in the air
As with dancing we’re carried away!

If leaves fall, if leaves fly, we kick-kick them up high
As they gather in dancing with we
Who, like winds that won’t cease, in their motion find peace,
And in flying are finally free.

We dance here, we dance there,
We dance dance everywhere,
And we don’t have a care to waylay.
We dance there, we dance here,
We dance dance with clear cheer,
And the ice and the snow toe away!

We don’t worry a second ’bout a storm that’s un-reckoned,
Or the earthquake that splits at our feet.
We just leap, tippy-toe,
O’er the gap down below
In a movement that’s awfully sweet!

Then through blustery breeze we go gambol and tease
The last week of mad March to roar loud,
While we dance with a smile in a flying up style
That wings freely and fearless and proud!
We dance here, we dance there,
We dance dance everywhere
With a lightness of spirit unbowed!
